Crisp-Ellert Museum Art Exhibit: Mirages
Friday, Sept. 3, to Saturday, Nov. 6, 2021 at Crisp-Ellert Art Museum
Stop by the Crisp-Ellert Art Museum on Flagler College's campus to view a special exhibit, Mirages, showcasing new work by Elizabeth Atterbury, Strauss Bourque-LaFrance and Katy Cowan.
Mirages are magical, disorienting, phenomenological, real to the eye, yet just a set of visual circumstances. They can suspend our beliefs and understanding of what is real versus what is perceived and force us to think about our relationship to time, space and landscape. They are about the act of looking.
Atterbury’s work shifts between sculpture and wall-based work. With her sculptures, she appropriates and remakes forms pulled from the world. The forms carry associations and meanings and together can be seen as a repository for Atterbury’s memories (specific and fleeting).
Cowan’s work blurs associations with material, subject matter and viewer experience. By working in cast aluminum reproductions of common objects and drawn responses to those very forms, she asks the viewer to look deeper and with the ability to get lost within their own looking.
Bourque-LaFrance engages in a painting practice that is emboldened by painting’s tactile and sculptural capacities. He draws on historical and personal language for vibrant works that embrace abstraction alongside representation, repetition and transformation, cutting and arranging the picture to build something else.
The exhibition will open with a walkthrough by the artists at 5 p.m. on Friday, September 3, followed by a reception until 8 p.m. Masks are required per Flagler College’s campus-wide COVID-19 policy.
