Kehler Liddell Gallery presents: Static, by Mark St. Mary, September 12 – October 13, with an Opening Reception on Saturday, September 14, and Artist Talks at 5pm.
Highlighting the futile quest of humankind to create permanence, Mark St. Mary reminds us that “objects, no matter how massive or solid, will deteriorate” over time. Unless, of course, “man takes on the Sisyphean task of trying to preserve them.” Interested not in what objects were, but rather, what they have become, St. Mary becomes a kind of preservationist. In this collection of abstract photographic images titled Static, St. Mary captures the “beauty of deterioration,” preserving a moment in time during the evolution of found objects.
This event is free and open to all. Artist talk presented by ArtEcon Initiative.
