Open Tues - Sat 12PM - 7PM
Shooting Gallery is pleased to present Empty Room, new works by Adam Caldwell, featuring ten large oil paintings, including two triptychs. The opening reception will be Saturday, November 10th, from 7-11pm, and is free and open to the public for viewing through December 8th, 2012.
Empty Room acts as a continuation and culmination of the series Caldwell has been working on since the beginning of the year, addressing the concept of Cartesian Dualism and its impact on Western society. The landscapes and interiors of Empty Room show the breakdown of culture in the grip of these ideas, with figures and scenes that span history to meet in a composite framework of destruction. With a fluid approach to photorealism, Caldwell creates images that seem to meld into and out of each other, united only in the feelings of struggle and loss their visages evoke.
