This event has ended.

Amos Eno Gallery presents Mere Complexities, a group show of 4 selected guest artists. Each artist was chosen for their unique style, yet in their differences they compliment each other.

Eric Banks’ works attempt to exist in a space that vacillates between the inner space of human consciousness and the outer realm of an incomprehensible infinite. His forms, conceived in the painting process are suggestive of the actual, but remain elusive in states of being and becoming.

Jill Bell is drawn to the inherent humor that exists amid life’s hardships. Life is often simultaneously laughable and heart wrenching. Bell’s work deals with the tension, irony and contradiction that result from this conflict. Her figures are placed in predicaments both real and surreal. Initially the viewer may see these situations as comical. On closer inspection, it is apparent that the characters are trapped by their own physical and/or emotional boundaries. This show of human fragility is what drives Bell’s work.

Kimberly Hennessy likes putting raw materials, like cardboard packaging, next to a labored-over painting. This feels at once fresh, obvious, laid-back, timeless, historical, and complete. Her work consistently bestrides the opposing positions of slack versus tight, exclusive versus banal, triumphant versus defeated, precise versus chaotic, micro versus macro, and cheery versus spooky.

Adehla Lee uses cathartic and meditative experiences to create visual pleasure. To achieve her goal, Lee enjoys using garish colors and a variety of symbolic creatures. If audiences feel some sort of satisfaction when observing her works, it means that her intention is successful.
