spinning under trees
Artist Talk: Saturday, Mar 23 2013, 1pm
On exhibit through Saturday, Mar 30, 2013
spinning under trees, a solo exhibition of drawings, video, painting, collage, and photography by Charlie Morris, explores the depersonalized distance caused by an excess of text, images, and other media. With a focus on how public and private interests are transmitted and received between commercial mediums and the general public, spinning under trees addresses the recursive relationship between a seeming forest of propaganda and the quality of collective consciousness it effects.
