Josef Albers has said that 'what counts is seeing, coupled with fantasy, with imagination'. A widely renowned color-theorist and artist, Albers finds that slight shifts in perception, color, and perspective can result in significant change in reception and meaning, a heightened sensitivity to reality, and stimulation to a previously unchallenged sense of awareness. Taking this as a starting point, the work exhibited further takes cues from meaning, language, and communication, the exhibition projects a series of views of the world as indefinable, in-flux, and in some instances, entirely void of meaning, or playful.
Mysteries brings together nine international artists who challenge reality to arrive at new modes of communication and meaning through the perspectives in their work. Each deconstructs and re-shapes his or her surroundings and reality through the process of art-making, offering a vision of the ordinary as something altogether extraordinary.
