DESCRIPTION

This group exhibition brings together a diverse group of artists who all, in some way or another, rely upon the psychedelic aesthetic made popular in the 1960s. While the works in the show address themes as varied as politics, religion, biology, identity, and popular culture, the visual iterations of these themes are exemplified by a visual language derived from the digital realm which explores complex patterns, biomorphic forms, intricate spatial and compositional relationships and perplexing color combinations. The show’s title, “Set the Controls For the Heart of the Sun” is drawn from the 1968 Pink Floyd song of the same title and alludes to the passion, wonderment and confidence that drive these artists to create.
