A group exhibition featuring work by Houston area teen artists
A group exhibition featuring work by Houston area teen artists. The exhibition explores conceptions of humanity: what it is to be human or inhuman, featuring work by 49 teens in a variety of media ranging from photography to video and sculpture. Photography figures prominently in this year's exhibition. Clinton Elliott's Untitled is a series of ten 5 x 7 inch photographs of portraits of people. In each of the photographs, however, the subject's face has been obscured with objects ranging from banana peels to fruit loops and Christmas decorations. Cory Jo's black-and-white image Truth shows a young racer, completely covered in racing jumpsuit and helmet, reading the obituaries. Many of the artists fuse human and nature together such as in Ashley Lawhorn's Redwoods digital photograph that shows a female figure with the head of a blue jay wearing a dress and leaning against a redwood tree. Zoie Brown's sculpture Treefingers depicts human fingers growing out of tree branches. Curator Rachel Cook. Opening Reception: Thursday, February 28 h 6:30-9PM.
