DESCRIPTION

Inside/Outside: States of Being features drawings, sculptures, photographs and prints from 1970- 2010. The works explore themes of outward appearance and persona in contrast to internal thoughts and hidden persona. What is on the surface in contrast to what is below the surface; what is available but not; what is not available but is. Fred Fehlau's Between a Rock and a Hard Place (Inside/Outside) questions the spatial relationship between the viewer and directional geography. Guy de Cointet's A Lady and Two Popes requires a cracking of a symbolic code to decipher the message. Nauman manipulates clever anagrams in Doe Fawn and M. Ampere. A double take is called for when viewing the ambiguous, billboard-sized statement in Deutch's I Have A Gun and Slater Bradley's doppelganger in Gold Tokyo.
