ICOSA Collective presents "Look: Lana Waldrep-Appl and Jenn Wilson Shepherd" opening day
ICOSA Collective presents "Look," an exhibition of new works by Lana Waldrep-Appl and Jenn Wilson Shepherd exploring the deliberate act of looking through the context of painting. Painting becomes a conscious act that calls our viewers to, in turn, be more aware of indifferent, hidden, or common subject matter. This means of translation invites the viewer to stop and really look.
Waldrep-Appl has long chosen to represent/re-present the things passively seen, but rarely actively looked at. This most recent work features a collection of exterior walls. These walls are almost all sourced from daily life and deliberately chosen for their genericism and ubiquity that often renders them invisible. Through the act of translating the objects with paint, Waldrep-Appl makes the invisible visible.
Following the opening day, the exhibit will be on display until February 15.
