Chris Twomey & Core Constellation
July 10 – August 1, 2010
Opening Reception: Thursday July 15, 6 - 9P
The “Core Group” is a consortium of artists who have collaborated on various projects over the past 15 years. In this collaborative effort, Twomey is the first artist in the group to be featured in a constellation of group shows, each time “starring” a different member.
Chris Twomey’s formidable body of work, inspired by themes of origins and identity, includes paintings, drawings, films, photographs, installations, musical compositions and text. These works are organized in series, each series becoming its own conceptual riff on a theme. Twomey’s bold and restless imagination takes the viewer from the beginnings of life, with huge digitized baby forms, to far into the future, where beast and human merge, commenting on the intersection of science with revelations about human nature. Throughout Twomey’s career, this search for identity, within the flux of time, context and environment, has been consistent.
Twomey’s most recent solo exhibition at CREON Gallery, “ASTRAL FLUFF: Carnal Bodies in Celestial Orbit” this spring garnered notice by critics and reviewers. “…we find ourselves enmeshed in a mystical dance of inter-connections and inter-relationships.” Eleanor Heartney.
