Harbinger: Works by Carey Morton
Exhibit dates: January 5 – February 10, 2018
Location: Main Gallery
Redux Contemporary Art Center is proud to present our first exhibition of 2018 Harbinger, an exhibition of sculptures and installations highlighting the work of emerging visual artist, Carey Morton.
Through an intuitive exploration of found objects rooted in the American South, Carey Morton’s work becomes anthropologic study of culture and the inherent qualities to be gleaned from these often overlooked materials. This process, combined with research and inspiration taken from Myth and Archetype, lead to a reinterpretation of ancient ideas and their relevance in modern society.
Throughout history there has been a deep human connection to the earth and an awareness of our role within the environment that contemporary culture often ignores. This work acknowledges both tangible and intangible attributes of human dependence on nature and visceral experience. Traditions of myth communicate a deeper, unspoken understanding of human consciousness.
