Opening Reception for Scan Lines/Hybridity and mask∙arrayed by Kirk Titmuss

Saturday, May 28, 1 - 4 pm

Join us at the WKP Kennedy Gallery for the opening receptions of Scan Lines/Hybridity by Bruce Cull and Jim Riley and mask∙arrayed by Kirk Titmuss.

The elements of air, water, fire and the animal world, spark Bruce Cull's (Latchford) and Jim Riley's (Burlington) departures into a very dynamic and fluid interaction between painting practices and technology-based imagery. The artists put into confrontation found objects from their natural surroundings, intuitive expressions, perhaps on canvas or board, and digital video pieces containing idiosyncratic images or text. Other elements that are played with, like visibility and obstruction, or the way a detail becomes a whole world when the observer is forced to approach the work, or discover new possibilities when encouraged to change the point of view, all of this becomes part of Scan Lines/Hybridity in our Gallery II Main Space.

In the gallery I space, Kirk Titmuss examines the hockey goalie mask from both the illustrational and sculptural planes with moments of whimsy and imagery. They are juxtaposed with up close observations of the earliest and utilitarian versions of the face mask. The artist touches upon the historical, theatrical and comic elements of the mask by combining all three qualities.
