Join us for the opening reception of Mind Loop by Ashley Whitt on Saturday, February 2, 2019, from 6-9 p.m. at The Janette Kennedy Gallery inside of South Side on Lamar.
Mind Loop, a solo exhibition by Ashley Whitt, explores the inability to escape certain memories or thoughts in one’s mind. Through self-portrait and still life photographs, large wall vinyl, GIFs, and sculptural handmade books, the artist aims to interpret and make sense out of the absurd. Inspired by Surrealism and Dadaism, Ashley Whitt seeks to subvert the viewer’s perception of reality and the rational. These images and moving stills aim to rationalize the irrational and turn the viewer’s perception on it’s head. Whitt invites the viewer to become immersed in an optical illusion. These illusions serve as metaphors for the absurdity we face in everyday life.
The exhibition runs from February 2nd to February 27th. www.ashleywhitt.com
