Elementary, my dear Watson
Mark Moore Gallery is pleased to present the third installment of our annual Ultrasonic International show. This year we have dispensed with a strictly linear thematic approach and instead will present a group of artists that we feel reflect a certain zeitgeist worthy of attention. After another twelve months of sleuthing the art world, we have selected and brought together sixteen promising artists, from the local to the international, whose work reflects a certain notion of "back to basics".
Each of these artists, irrespective of materials and production, address the personal via a poignant reflection upon various and varying issues, which to them are close to home. They present art making as an investigation of individual obsessions and intent, which deals with theoretical positions but never at the cost of their own cognitive decisions; they prioritize their own interiorized concerns. The results of such introspection range from the abject to the celebratory, but fundamentally these sixteen artists are all detectives of the Self.
