Distance and intimacy offer a range of perspectives toward viewing a work of art. Many times proposed intimacy can invite an uncomfortable response of distance from one party or another not wanting the responsibility intimacy needs. The works in this exhibition on one level or another engages distance and intimacy, while occasionally embodying both. In all of these works distance is what we have when we come to the work, intimacy is what we give to it by participating in it and internalizing it. All of this takes place in space, through the eyes, and in the mind.
The artists in this show deploy their visions within this field and bring to it a range of ideas about perception, meaning, content and form. This diversity is intended as is a challenge to a superficial grouping of appearances. ~M.M.
