OPENING RECEPTION: David Olivant: Confessions of a Rodent Station Master

October 12 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Free

ON VIEW THRU DECEMBER 8, 2023: Called “Retroglyphs,” this new series of mixed-media works on paper by artist David Olivant invite viewers to adopt the mindset of the archeologist who sifts through diverse iconographic clues to recover a forgotten and possibly repressed narrative pertaining to the loss of hope and a fall from grace. Each and all seem like fragmentary scenes salvaged and reconstructed from the remnants of bygone circumstances that both reveal and conceal a kind of coming to consciousness, presented in compressed layers of pictorial activity that are provisionally sutured together to recreate something resembling a crime scene. Viewers are left unsure as to whether or not something bad has happened, or is about to happen, but either way, a human dilemma is revealed.
