Fragments of Ubiquity: Paintings by Cody Schriever
Artist Reception: February 1st, 6-9 pm | INVITE
On View: January 28 – February 2nd
Cody Schriever combines a mixture of different imagery and styles of painting, addressing the fractured and chaotic reality that humanity creates for itself. Reflecting on the bombardment of information in the modern age, and the enduring forces that drive human behavior in both the micro- and macro- levels of the population, while coping with the fact that our species seems bent on self-destruction.
Observations and musings on these repeating phenomena foster the emotive reaction of the artist which is transformed into the abstract backdrop in which the content and subject matter sticker and blend, resulting in psychological depictions of the world through the eyes of the artist.
