MASTER OF REALITY includes drawings, paintings, sculpture and prints that alter our perceptions of commonplace scenery, find fodder in the mundane, and draw our attention to the handling rather than the objects themselves. The featured artists create an alternate dimension of familiar objects, carefully mimicking reality so that it is recognizable, yet altering it enough to uniquely capture their own way of seeing.
Each artist has mastered their own language of perception, in turn manipulating the viewers’ aesthetic preconceptions of objects and environments. Familiar surroundings and everyday items become broken down into colors, values, shapes, lines, textures and forms. These artworks give the viewer the rare opportunity to explore the relationship between seeing and rendering reality.
