Event Details

Join us for two exhibition openings happening on April 1st: “JUNK FOOD” by Taylor Lee Nicholson (they/them) and “Even further beyond thought – is the sky I watched as a child. With Love, from Earth” by Shelby Corso

“JUNK FOOD” is a kitschy, irreverent, and at times unnerving exhibition that brings attention to our participation in consumer culture. Whether we’re inhaling content from the internet or shopping on Amazon, consu
merism depends on “junk food” – something we consume to satisfy a craving, but is ultimately temporary. Our addiction to consuming indicates a deep and significant void inside, a hunger that junk food cannot really satisfy.
In “Even further beyond thought – is the sky I watched as a child. With Love, from Earth,” Corso explores her relationship to symbolism, ritual, and mythmaking. Her work renders bright images of flowers, bodies, windswept, dreamy fields and brightly colored atmospheres. She often sources imagery from nature, stories, found objects, dreams, and imagination, working somewhere between abstract and representational. Corso works to synthesize visual and emotional information to describe the phenomenon of being on earth. She typically works on smaller scales to create a more intimate experience between the viewer and the work.
