Young artists are increasingly drawn to the duality of self. What does it mean to be a social being in a globalized world? Do we wear masks, or are these really just second skins; organic layers that each represent a piece of who we are?
By primarily using mundane objects (stamps, pen marks, coins, and food ) as their medium, these artists simultaneously comment on how everyday these items are while elevating them to the magical. The commonplace of our lives is largely what defines us. This cultural debris is a part of who we are; dynamic, plural, and infinitely layered.
