Jan. 23- Feb. 28, 2015
Cecily Horton Gallery, Lawndale, Houston, Texas
Opening Reception: Jan. 23rd, from 6:30-8:30
Proposal to Lawndale:
After reading The Radicant an odd paranoia set in considering the role of global standardization through modernist universalism and the reaction against it: a re-entrenchment in cultural or nationalistic identity. Considering the notion that modernism is an aesthetic stripped of identity, essentially empty of humanist value, can be echoed in the globalized individual who has no roots, and thus no identity. One may even be tempted to assume the traits (or lack of traits) present in our surroundings can be transmuted to the individual: environmental determinism of vacancy.
