June 2018: ‘You Know What I Mean?’

You Know What I Mean?

June 1 – 30, 2018
Opening Reception: First Friday Art Walk, June 1st from 5 – 9pm

Longina Smolinski – ‘Running Into Yourself (2)’, acrylic on canvas

Modern day interactions with peers in social settings are often ripe with conversations that are meant to validate thoughts and reactions to daily occurrences. In a search for affirmation one party may ask, “You know what I mean?”

This question may be construed as a statement, seeking a confirmation rather than debate.

Blake Larsen – ‘Untitled 3’, acrylic on 140lb papier d’arche

The artist, while creating, is having a conversation with the piece in hand. Ultimately, the artwork is meant to serve as a statement to the future viewer, of which interpretations are limitless. Throughout history, abstract paintings often comment on an underlying subject matter or cultural reference.

Dan Siegel – ‘The Fountains’, acrylic on panel

‘You Know What I Mean?’ as an exhibition wants to be subjectless, though meaning can be found in all visual art if you look and think hard enough. The goal of The Space Gallery this June is to encourage the viewer to push back and see if they can in fact answer the question at hand, presented uniquely by each artist.
