Distance [dis-tuh ns]
The state or fact of being apart in space, as of one thing from another; remoteness.
Distance exhibits both physical and emotional components. There is the distance from a past event which caused transformation. The distance from a future event can be equally imposing. A more immediate distance exists between the viewer and the gallery wall. In becoming aware of the distance addressed by the artwork, the awareness of one's present state of being is enhanced.
The selected artists explore these physical aspects of distance through conceptual art, drawing, mixed media, painting, photography and text.
Featuring the work of George Artinian, Colleen Blackard, William Brovelli, Marcy Chevali, Dexter Ciprián, Carrie Crow, Mustafa Faruki, Bill Heinrich, Rebecca Herman, Brad Isnard, Katarina Jerinic, Blair Lambert, Francine Leclercq, Mitchell Marco, Mauricio Morrillas, Lovina Purple, Alejandra Regalado, Lauren Smith, Ali Soltani and Miho Suzuki.
RadiusTwelve is a group of independent artists working together to showcase contemporary art. This is RadiusTwelve's first curated exhibition.
Since 1979, the not-for-profit El Taller Latino Americano, The Latin American Workshop, has been a forum for artists from
across the Americas to form and perform new works. Inspired by the belief that the creative act and cultural interchange
dispel fear and mistrust between communities, El Taller offers a space for shared artistic and cultural experience.
