In conjunction with our current exhibition, we are pleased to present a selection of artworks created by historic artists who have influenced the contemporary artists in our main show. View the “Influences” section here.
The level of vulnerability displayed in the content of these artists’ works results in a deep identification with common elemental reflections on being human. The beauty of vulnerability, observing the nude mind as a way to unload a history of biases and filtration systems, brings comfort through discomfort caused by unfiltered communication.
The comfort comes from seeing individuals and basic human commonalities.
Fear often shuts us down from understanding and looking at something clearly.
Seeing beauty in identifying with our common vulnerability leads to connecting with individuals and creative reactions.
The works in this exhibition are held together by the way the Unconscious, a term Carl Jung used to describe what Sigmund Freud called the Subconscious, can display subject matter often relegated to the private sphere or kept to oneself completely.
Conveying this subject matter in “normal” social interactions, would often be called “over sharing”. These artists generously display their essential thoughts.
