High Art 2022: REFLECTIONS

In-gallery Exhibition:  May 17th – June 2nd, 2022

_____________

THEME: REFLECTIONS

Reflect on the world around you – either literally or figuratively – to create personal and profound installations that consider the power of the reflection.  Artists have been transfixed by reflections throughout history, the simple play of light on still water or glass, a figure in the mirror as an effective tool to communicate identity or using surfaces to place a call for reflection from the viewer that welcomes or captures them in the piece. 

Play with metallic materials, glass and mirrors. Ponder depictions of self-reflection, double visions, explore optical illusions or distortions, traveling through the looking glass, reflect on moments in time or contemplate nature’s mirrors.  For inspiration look to artists through the ages such as Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, M.C. Escher, Francis Cadell, Charlotte Greeven, Graham Caldwell, Sir Anish Kapoor, Faith Ringgold, Yayoi Kusama and Olafur Eliasson.

What is installation art?

Installation art uses any material invention to modify the way a space is experienced, and can be either temporary or permanent (please refer to pages 9 & 10 of the High Art 2022 packet for installation art examples from past High Art Exhibits).  Installation artworks have been constructed in exhibition spaces such as museums and galleries, as well as public and private spaces.  The genre incorporates a broad range of materials, including but not limited to huge, three-dimensional painting/murals, sculpture, poems, and new media such as video, sound, and performance art.
