Place and space morph from reality and become dreamlike memories of the experience. Through making, the artists create ephemera that consciously or subconsciously respond to such dreams of the everyday. Material metaphor and formal decision become paintings, sculptures, prints, and collages, that are then tools for contemplation and icons of memory. In an era of socio-political turmoil, contemplation becomes necessary to promote peace and openness.
Anamnesis, a group show by four emerging artists currently working in Portland, Oregon, presents an abstract representation of experience, emotion, and place and promotes a curiosity and poetic understanding of how space and place can expand into something else entirely.
