Featuring: Bill Brookover
Reception: September 8th, 12pm – 3pm
Gallery 2, upstairs @ DVAA
Dissonance is a solo exhibition of prints by Bill Brookover. Brookover is a printmaker and photographer using design, texture, and geometric structure to explore architecture, layered landscapes, urban streetscapes, and history. This exhibition promises to address the experience of clashing disorder that pervades politics, social interactions, and culture. Focusing on changes initiated by digital technology, globalized economies, and climate change; Bill Brookover displays the absence of harmony, Dissonance.
Dissonance is the result of conflict, whether in music, in art, or in life. We seek harmony, so we seek to reconcile conflicts and differences. This process is part of personal growth, of learning, and of opening ourselves to empathy and compassion.
Brookover created this body of work to explore visual metaphors for dissonance and harmony. Opposing systems and visual languages are placed in relation to one another by exploring geometric patterning in relation to flowing organic forms. This sets up oppositions of straight lines against curves, of ordered grids against flowing lines, and of geometric shapes against organic forms. Brookover seeks harmony through the resolution of dissonance.
Gallery hours: Thursday – Sunday, 12-5 pm
