AT "Ghostly landscapes»Alissa B. DeVille, Georgette L. Weder, and Samuel Tuman, graduates of the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts, depict scenes from personal experience and open subconscious realms through painting, drawing, and sculpture.
Alyssa DeVille uses a stylized, illustrative style of painting for her allegorical works that depict women, men and children as actors of mythological power. The figures in her works go from integrity to communication with the environment, a direct conflict with it and offer a personal view of history, as old as time.
In the works of Georgette Weder - monumental rock formations are freed from the wall of the gallery, looking like arches and totems, towering above the viewer. These paper forms, seemingly dense, retain a soft edge and tactility, which immerse the viewer deeper into the imaginary world of the master. Sculptural works of Weder suggest a living presence, attracting and changing the environment.
Samuel Fog creates images of ghostly houses, interior spaces and corridors through the symbols of computer images, causing them to radiate a feeling of cold and forbidden strangeness. Recognizable shapes, objects, and patterns are erased from heavy graphite soil and represent disturbing diagrams and warning signs.
Each artist in this exhibition goes beyond the traditional conventions of representation into memorable imaginary worlds, where you can unravel encrypted warnings and witness the uncertainty inherent in human experience.
