PERCEPTION >=< PERSPECTIVE
February 1–May 26
In Perception >=< Perspective there are not any discussions of the work, or the artist. The interpretation is left to the viewer. Works have been chosen based on our interpretations of how they may connect. However, you are the moderator of your feelings toward the works. It is your perception, your perspective.
It is said that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Art, like beauty, speaks on a personal level. A work of art one person connects to, or finds comfort in, is often lost to another person viewing the same work. Artists are also part of this equation. It is their vision that produced the work, but once it leaves the studio their original idea and interpretation are truly left up to the viewer.
