This event has ended.

People interested in perception have long struggled to explain what visual processing does to create what is actually seen. To provide clarity, the exhibit "Diplopia” showcases the differences and similarities between Asanti’ Austin and Elaine Marie. The mother and son team feature their respective works of art at the Ouchi Gallery of Brooklyn, April 19th at 7 pm. This exhibit explores the “simultaneous perception" of one vision by these two artists; "double vision" or Diplopia. Diplopia asks a series of intimate questions that bring the viewer inside a perplex mother/son relationship. How do they transfer information which multiplies vectors, aligns circles, bends lines and twists angles? Diplopia delves into questions of spirituality, self reflection, immortality and the effects of interactions with those who come into our lives and are replaced by temporary actors. Elaine Marie uses surrealistic imagery in vivid impressionistic color through lush pastel strokes as she explores themes of personal relationships. Whereas, Mr. Austin boldly steps in tandem with a projection of the fashion industry and its idiosyncrasies through satire, making a point of wizardry through erratic black lines breaking apart relationships. However, they find common stylistic ground in their artistic influences and passions. While not instantly obvious, their influences can be traced back to the Impressionists, Les Arts Décoratifs , Sandro Botticelli, Salvador Dali, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Japanese Lithographs and the beauty of the world around them. Truly a hot and cold relationship like their physical realities, Miami and New York, now mother and son see " eye to eye."
