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.
