Only the Shallow Know Themselves

Only the Shallow Know Themselves

Presented by WMU Gwen Frostic School of Art and WMU Gwen Frostic School of Art - Galleries at Western Michigan University - Albertine Monroe-Brown Gallery

Addressing the search for personal and artistic identity by way of Oscar Wilde’s witty claim, “Only the shallow know themselves,” this exhibition features the work of three recent Gwen Frostic School of Art graduates.  Working in sculpture and ceramics, painting, and video installation respectively, Kaylon Khorsheed, Sophie Lane Dennis, and Audrey Mills investigate the search for self and how objects, images, and spaces merge, fall apart, or splinter unexpectedly.  For this exhibition, Kaylon Khorsheed will debut a new installation composed of ceramics and wood; Sophie Lane Dennis will premiere a new body of paintings; and Audrey Mills will screen her most recent video project as an installation in the Richmond Center’s black box. Elemental questions with which many young artists grapple unifies the work of these three recent School of Art graduates, i.e. does art-making parallel the quest to “know thyself,” the Greek phrase upon which Wilde’s prophecy plays, and in what ways might the quest for stable identity—individual, creative, and otherwise—remain futile?
