DESCRIPTION

The gallery will be closed for the remainder of August. We will reopen Tuesday, September 4th.

Needles in the Camel’s Eye is an examination of how images are intended to be read and further, how they are utilized and dispersed. Each of these artists employs external references that enable their work to be digested in a wide variety of manners. With the deployment of stylistic and pictorial tropes the artists convey meaning with simultaneous clarity and reticence, leaving their images as intentionally unresolved entities. While deftly navigating theoretical, technological and art historical discourses the artists create networks in which to situate nuanced approaches towards production.

Being that each artist is well attuned to the roles images play in our increasingly visualized world, the viewer is intended to extract not a single but rather a multitude of meanings within a given work. In this the works operate as sites of potentiality and, in the context of the group exhibition, call upon themselves, the surrounding works and the gallery space itself as a means of furthering this potentiality.
