Opening reception: May 27, 2022, 5-8pm

The work of video artists Gillian Brown & Cherie Sampson shares glimpses of the in-between: subtle junctions between the substantial and the fleeting, form and dissolution, stillness and movement. The artists in their individual practices each explore suspension of duality and transience, expressed through compatible visual language, approaches to sound and philosophical underpinnings. Motifs referring to nature, the body and the cosmos, often depicted with slow dissolves and superimpositions allude to transformations in time, scale, and place.  Shifting perception and the evanescence of existence itself is intrinsic to both artists’ work.
