New Paintings by John Detweiler
opening reception: Saturday, March 9, 4-7 pm
on view: March 13–March 30, 2024
This show seeks to raise questions regarding the social and private impact of our new media dominated world. Techniques such as image slippage and context evaporation are employed in this endeavor. Images created with texture and materiality are in marked contrast to those bathed in the seamless glow of the monitor screen. Juxtaposing non -contextual images mimics a channel surfing safari and the jump-cutting mode of cinematic production. The trope of the cut out image reflects the mundane phoniness lurking behind the Hollywood back drop that has become our main street.
True representation in today’s world of relativism is an unattainable mirage. Therefore, this show embraces false fabrication that reflects only too truly the lack of solid ground upon which we now stand in a fakery enhanced world. The false has become our true world.
