Floating World: Part One

July 12 - August 9, 2014

The works in Floating World: Part One showcase both collaborative and solo pieces from KEFE, artist duo Kelly Tunstall and Ferris Plock, and are an exploration of, and center around, their profound love for Japanese traditions and culture. The title of the show is in direct reference to the ancient art of Ukiyo-e, which translates to “pictures of the floating world.” The concept of an actual floating world intrigued the duo and they began building a body of work around the idea of an unrooted, ever changing place where anything is possible. The Japanese concept of Tsukumogami, the belief that objects acquire a soul after 100 years of existence, is also evident in the symbolic objects illustrated in the couple’s paintings.
