Opening Reception: September 16th,  6 – 8 PM
On view through October 22nd, 2016

 

Ask any given person, and Kevin Todora’s work could be described as photography, painting, or sculpture. These are only partial answers. By presenting images in unconventional formats, Todora minimizes the certainty associated with photography while creating something more authentic: objects with exposed substrates and the tell-tale signs of digital printing processes. The resulting work falls on the trajectory of artists like Jon Baldessari, Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. In the effort to sort through the visual information in this work, the viewer is practicing a criticism of images in contemporary culture. Todora will have an exhibition concurrently at Erin Cluley Gallery in Dallas, Texas.

Kevin Todora Lives and works in Dallas, Texas. His work has been included in recent group shows at Fort Worth Contemporary Arts, University of Texas at Dallas, and Barry Whistler Gallery. In 2013, the Dallas Contemporary produced a solo exhibition of Todora’s work. He earned his MFA from Southern Methodist University and his BFA from the University of Texas at Dallas.
