Reimagining the Exhibition
Oil on Canvas

An art exhibition is itself a work of art. I think curators are artists whose raw materials include the space and light available along with the artworks in the exhibit. In this piece, I was exploring what might happen if the artworks themselves--each one full of life--were altered and were part of a narrative larger than themselves.
