Sensorial Perspectives is a collective exhibition that spans painting, photography, and mixed-media, all in the service of exploring art as something more than simply a visual medium. This experimentation can be seen in portraits in which realistic draftsmanship and neon colors have a playful back-and-forth, or photographs that present the world from the point of view of someone always in motion. Sound, touch, and motion are all evoked.
Agora Gallery's new exhibition Landscapes of the Mind offers six new ways to look at the natural world. Five painters and one photographer from all around the globe analyze and more importantly appreciate the exquisiteness of oceans, forests, and skies. There are painstakingly detailed whirlpools; there are mountains painted as choppy slashes of blazing color; there are wild animal portraits rendered as pop art masterworks. Far from the untouchable grandeur of the traditional landscape painting, the pieces on display here invite the audience into the terrain to soak up some of that bracing experience for themselves. Defending its chosen genre against accusations of being stuffy or staid, Landscapes of the Mind proves that there is still quite a lot to say about the planet.
