Throughout the ages, artists have sought to deceive viewer’s eyes, and in our digital-image-saturated era, how can we discern what is real, anymore? The four contemporary artists gathered in this exhibition – Curt Ikens, Kim Keever, Martin Kruck, and Jeremy Coleman Smith – employ unconventional materials and methods to construct the illusion of space. Curated by Midori Yoshimoto.

A line from one of Rudyard Kipling’s poems, “a rag, a bone, a hank of hair” is an expression used in the artist’s family to mean, “You look haggard.” Painted, cut up, and sewn together, Burton’s canvases portray beautiful grid patterns that do not entirely match up and are as imperfect as the expression.

The three artists known as Mustart (NJCU BFA 2009), Clarence Rich, and Distort, grew up with the visual language of graffiti, yet formally studied painting. This trio’s take on Street Art -- the most recent movement to have gained international popularity in the lineage of art history -- reflects the evolution of this phenomenon, connecting classical art with contemporary street culture.
