Curious Curio by digital artist Marcus Conge
AXOM Gallery Exhibition Space
176 Anderson Ave., Suite #303
Oct 6, 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In this series of work, Conge explores the new media of computer generated image making simultaneously with the exploration of his inner psyche, with the intention of revealing the struggles that life presents to all of us, and to which we can all relate. “While a heightened state of discomfort isn’t for everyone”, says Conge, “… it’s all I know. I need those conditions to survive. They keep me from being satisfied with the work I did a year ago and the work I’ll do tomorrow.” “When I’m struck by inspiration, I run with it. When I’m short on inspiration, I find it in the everyday. More specifically it finds me, as I practice the disciplined task of creating work every day—work that gives visual expression to the feelings and situations I grapple with on a regular basis.” – Marcus Conge
While Conge’s work is created from his own deep thoughts emotions, secrets, and imaginings, he encourages outside critique and interpretation, as he holds in high regard that which is informed by the viewers’ unique personal experiences. The exhibit runs thru Nov 4.
