Pete Kohut: Depth of Field
Friday, March 1, 7-9pm
exhibition dates: Saturday and Sunday, March 2-17 11am-4pm.
These paintings explore the structure of looking. The work questions what it means to look at images in today’s chaotic, consumer-driven visual environment. Marks are used as building blocks; repeating them to create a weave, net, or field of positive and negative information. This repetitive process creates an image that denies hierarchy (narrative) or inspiration (the grand gesture). It emphasizes labour (process) and touch (the artist’s hand).
