ICOSA Collective presents Figure/heads opening reception
ICOSA collective will present the first of a series of two-person member shows, Figure/heads, featuring the work of David Bae and Erin Cunningham. In their respective media, the two artists present their own distinct interpretations of the physical/psychological aspects of the figure.
Bae’s portraits merge a range of subjects and caricatures. They lack the continuity of traditional portraiture while mining its conventions. Delving into psychological headspace, his paintings both abstract and mirror the ways seeing, thinking, and feeling do not always align.
Cunningham frames the body’s mundane folded spaces, and casts them in an unfamiliar light. In her metal, wax, and plaster castings, cross-sections of the body are preserved and inserted into everyday décor, coupling objects of comfort with the strange and eerie.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through September 24.
