Specific Gravity: Chevalier, Jensen, Meet and Seniuk
The four northwest contemporary artists featured in the exhibition at first appear to have little in common. Their recent works do not condense around a theme common to all, nor are they at all similar stylistically. For that matter, even the cultural and historical references that can be found in each artist’s work are by no means consistent. Yet a purpose exists for bringing these artists together. A common feature emerges from the juxtapositions of the four quite distinct esthetic approaches. It is the apparent, seemingly fundamental idea that, for each artist in the exhibition, the chosen element of illusion in art are exposed as visual and metaphorical deceptions.
