Double Take

11/24/2019 - 02/23/2020

Artists often manipulate the properties of one medium to appear like something else and use the medium to question the subject matter. The contemporary objects in this exhibition build on the historical tradition of trompe l’oeil, which translates from French to “deceive the eye.” While some artists intentionally try to make one material look like another, others are simply exploring the versatility of the medium. These works, such as Robin by Margaret Keelan, employ tradition as inspiration, mimicking customary works found in various cultures through different mediums.
