April 7 - May 13

Event Navigation

April 7 – May 13, 2017
Reception: Friday, April 7, 5:30 – 7:30 pm
 
Locks Gallery is pleased to present Invisible Reality, a selection of recent work and installations  by  New-York  based  artist  Rob  Wynne.  There  will  be  a  reception  for the artist on Friday, April 7th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm and the exhibition will continue through May 12th, 2017.
 
For  his  fourth  solo  show  at  the  gallery,  Wynne  will  exhibit  work  across  a  range  of mediums,  including  large-scale  poured  and  mirrored  glass  wall  abstractions, canvases of baroque imagery embroidered with text, and collaged prints of a  magic act. Seduced by dynamic and mesmerizing elements, the viewer enters his world and sees oneself reflected in it, through metallic finishes and mirrored glass sculpture.  Recurrent in Wynne’s work is the notion of self-awareness— literally in the material as well as psychologically on a more contemplative level.
 
Wynne  describes Invisible  Reality as  that  momentary  pause—that  “blink”  when  a seemingly contradictory pairing of words actually makes for a sharper understanding. The artist’s underlying thematic stance in this body of work is a long held belief in a fourth dimension—a cosmic consciousness.  Be it a slight of hand in a magician’s performance  (one  subject  depicted  in  Wynne’s  collages)  or  the  physical  presence of  the  artist’s  suspended  hands,  cast  in  clay  with  glass  eyes  inlaid  on  the  palms; an  enlightened  aura  reverberates  between  works. Invisible  Reality is  a  testament to  Rob  Wynne’s  mastery  of  contradiction  and  exploration  of  fixed  meaning;  as  we contemplate the work, we are faced with our own reflection.
