Exhibit at Otis Street Arts Project :: Home is where one starts from

Home is where one starts from

Otis Street Arts Project will host an opening reception for their new exhibit 
Home is where one starts from 
curated by Zofie Lang.

This exhibition examines interior spaces, both literally and guratively. Four artists explore the idea of home as a space of memory and identity, something that leaves a lasting impression even after they no longer inhabit it.

Maggie Gourlay investigates ideas of home and domesticity through installation and screen prints, using construction materials and blueprints along with household materials. e screen prints in particular recall a childhood home, using sewing thread to create meticulous architectural plans.

Khánh H. Lê’s polymer photogravure etchings combine family photos with iconic images as well as clippings from fashion magazines to create new per- sonal historical narratives. As a Vietnamese-born American, home is an ambiguous concept, and his photo collages contain clues in a search for his own identity.

Michele Montalbano’s oil paintings start with a viewpoint of a familiar room, which is gradually erased and painted over, leaving only ghostly traces of the original.

Lisa Noble’s symbolic paintings and drawings of room scenes represent self-portraits, little narratives that give a glimpse into her personal world, imbued with memories.

Please come and celebrate with Otis Street Arts Project and the talented Artists in this exciting invitational exhibit.
