Transfigure, featuring the evocative artwork of Katie Fogg and Elisha Schauer, will open with a reception 7-10 pm, on Saturday, May 30 at the Hygienic Galleries, 79 Bank Street, New London. The exhibit runs through June 27.
The exhibit showcases the artists’ creative vision that interprets and transfigures our contemporary cultural landscape. Both artists are known for bold, colorful and spirited work.
Described by the artists as a “bright, spastic, visual and musical experience, Transfigure displays the inner qualities of people, animals, or places, imparting a sense of disposition and internal quality that cannot be expressed in traditional portraiture.”
Although both artists, who met as students at the Lyme Academy College of Fine Arts, possess their own style, they share a passion for taking the traits of everyday individuals, advertisements, and pop culture to transfigure them into an idiosyncratic, unspoken language.
The result is a perspective not to be missed by two contemporary artists who share a desire to show the world what they see in a similarly unconventional way.
