Plus Gallery \;presents one of our most significant group effo rts to-date with the invitational exhibition &ldquo\;Super Human&rdquo\; fr om July 10th through August 15th. The survey brings together a wide ranging field of artists from around the world that collectively depict diverse di rections in portraiture or a strong focus on the human condition\, anchored by an array of Plus Gallery&rsquo\;s most acclaimed artists. A massing of small-scale 2-d works are intermixed with a trio of highly entertaining mot ion-based artworks\, all anchored by a riveting sculpture by artist Roger R eutimann.Super &ndash\; | &rsquo\;soōpә r | adjective &ndash\; informal ver y good or pleasant\; excellent.

As defined by t he OED\, to be super is to be great\, magnificent and above the rest. To be super is to be something uniquely extraordinary. To be human is to be sepa rate from any other species or entity\, of this world and beyond\, and cruc ially\, to be capable of error. The hybridization that occurs when combinin g these terms creates a space for infinite possibilities in terms of what t he Super Human is capable of. New elements are added which provide a sense of fantasy\, mystery\, and obscuration that are outside of the norm. These portraits represent a diverse range of ideas on people today\, how we docum ent ourselves and others\, the true versus the ideal\, the combination of t he physical with the spiritual\, and so on. These works draw the viewer in to contemplate what is in front of them\, calling upon them to read into th e works and the concepts behind their executions. What does it means to be super human? Or rather how do you convey such a concept? One must consider these contexts in order to grasp the artists intentions behind the works.\n

We live in a time when access to imagery is limitless\, it surrounds us constantly. Through social media\, the internet\, billboards\, TV\, etc .\, we are inundated with images of people to the point where we become num b. For the &ldquo\;Super Human&rdquo\; to exist is to revive notions on wha t it is to live in a time where technology warps our perception of reality but instead of stripping that down\, takes it one\, or two\, or 10 steps fu rther. By blurring those lines and redefining the human through a variety o f representations\, (whether it be additions to the body or a totally new a nthropomorphic form) &ldquo\;Super Human&rdquo\; turns the ordinary into th e extraordinary.
