Cue Depth | Nov 6-23, 2014
Cue Depth presents an acknowledgement of the artist’s active seeking or negating of depth to expose the photograph’s role as a flat representation of three-dimensional space.
Cue Depth is a playful nod at indicators of depth in two-dimensional representations. The show makes light of the two-dimensional art object’s dependence on illusion to create a sense of depth, or three-dimensional space. Vickery creates wax cast blocks poured and coloured by hand, obsessively organizing them in rigid assembly-like combinations that obscure visual comprehension. Somjen uses various materials, both man-made and organic, to manifest depth cues as objects themselves. The exhibition presents an acknowledgement of the artist’s active seeking or negating of depth to expose the photograph’s role as a flat representation of three-dimensional space.
