Hygienic Resident Show: Krista Stanowicz

OPENING RECEPTION: JULY 7, 6-9PM | EXHIBITION RUNS UNTIL AUGUST 3RD

Music by DJ Frank LoLine has been depicted in art since the prehistoric animal paintings in the Chauvet Cave in France to the “Venus” of Willendorf small fertility goddess sculpture from Austria. The element of line has been found in everything from architecture, drawings, textiles, pottery, sculpture, mathematics, symbols and language throughout the world.The concept for this group show focuses on line. All of the featured artist’s works examine the use of line in their own unique way, some simply and others dramatic. The unwritten rules of line have been created, broken and reworked by artists for centuries. This particular show evokes the illusion of lines and the blur between traditional and unconventional.

Music by DJ Frank LoLine has been depicted in art since the prehistoric animal paintings in the Chauvet Cave in France to the “Venus” of Willendorf small fertility goddess sculpture from Austria. The element of line has been found in everything from architecture, drawings, textiles, pottery, sculpture, mathematics, symbols and language throughout the world.The concept for this group show focuses on line. All of the featured artist’s works examine the use of line in their own unique way, some simply and others dramatic. The unwritten rules of line have been created, broken and reworked by artists for centuries. This particular show evokes the illusion of lines and the blur between traditional and unconventional.
