DESCRIPTION
Decoy, a group exhibition of sculpture, painting, video, and works on paper, engages the political and psychological aspects of deception, perception, cognition and abstraction at the Lobot Gallery in Oakland, CA. Objects and animals in the natural world often take on environmental elements to conceal or emphasize form and shape. Similarly, humans mimic surfaces and forms to convey contrary information, as with counterfeit objects or misleading advertising. The artists in this exhibition create 'decoys' that reference actual forms, but bring attention to the way(s) that surfaces often convey contrary information, and how art objects often stand-in for what is already out in the world.
