Missing Me One Place Search Another, curated by Brooklyn studio mates Libby Rosa and Chris Lucius, offers viewers experiences rooted in memories of place, touch, and imagination. Details of the world around us are recalled from our well of memories. The brain’s stimulated neurons compile a scene by merging groups of consolidated synapses that have been fired in patterns identical to the body’s initial stimulation. Traces of felt experiences, emotions, and visual information are melded together to form what we perceive as structured memories.
The visceral and tactile medium of paint relocates a memory into a new creative space – one that embraces the illogical and the uncanny. A space where missing information or exaggerated details illuminate a deeper visual understanding than its integrated whole. The viewers find themselves in a game of psychological hide and seek to construct what they believe they understand.
The artists in Missing Me One Place Search Another play the roles of creators, re-shapers, and folklorist tricksters – painting trail markers of their past to communicate something entirely new.
