Dissonance ~ this Saturday in LA

1:41 pm in art events dustin hostetler

One of my favorite artists, and long time friend of Faesthetic, Alexis Anne Mackenzie is curating a show at the POVevolving gallery in LA. It opens tomorrow, and if you have a chance, you should check it out. It is always exciting when artists take on the role of curator, and I hope more galleries will get behind the concept.

“In music, “dissonance” is a term used to describe elements such as chords, harmonies, and intervals, which have a clashing quality. It is often, by definition, a harsh sound, but one which contributes greatly on many levels to the beauty and expressiveness of music.

Dissonance is intended to explore the similar overlapping/clashing qualities of visual artworks which are neither figurative nor abstract; or both at once. I’m hoping to highlight a certain grey area within which artwork can exist by either definition; wherein abstract sensibilities heavily inform figurative renderings, and vice versa, so that the two become indistinguishable, and can be simultaneously appreciated.”
