Faggionato Fine Arts is pleased to announce the opening of National Geographic, a group show featuring work by Maria von Köhler, Alain Miller, John Summers and John Tiney.
The exhibition, National Geographic, with its connotations of discovery, adventure and knowledge, its vast repository of subject matter -The world-
here brings together four young artists whose works defy simple
contextual definition. Using inspiration from the everyday, they create
an entirely new and unfamiliar constituency of elements, encouraging
the viewer to momentarily inhabit new realities, self-contained worlds
of their creation. The artists’ forensic use of source material and
imagery encapsulate moments that bridge identity and location, allowing
the viewer to reflect on the pragmatic real world from a surreal
standpoint. Through a broad amalgamation of references, the works
connect the emotional with material side of life, bringing the viewer
full circle to the awareness of a hyper-reality.
