Lauren E. Peters and Ken Mabrey
October 5 – 28, 2018
Lauren E. Peters
Peters’ work addresses the fluidity and multifaceted nature of identity. Each painting is based on a single photograph, utilizing a variety of clothing and props to switch between various personas. While the costumes may be thought of as disguises, they are created to bring the different realities beneath our “normal” appearance to light.
Ken Mabrey’s linear, expressive brushwork recalls the work of Reginald Marsh and Peter Paul Rubens with fantastical and voluptuous figures. His playful sketches, referred to as “mark-makings,” contain vast color range.
