DESCRIPTION

Hannah Kasper is hosting an artist reception at Lucky Gallery Saturday, Sept 12, from 6-9 pm.

Hannah’s series of peephole installations containing small paintings within “shoebox” theaters will be on display. The viewer approaches the peephole on the gallery’s wall and finds a view into a miniature world. The scale of the paintings, which are on blocks of wood, recalls the miniature and childhood, but the scenes depicted are more sinister than nostalgic. One view will depict a scene from a murder mystery. Another will show a room devastated by a natural disaster. The limited access of the peephole encourages each viewer to become a voyeur who completes the picture and imagines the narrative.

Food and drink will be provided.
