LOS ANGELES—Eight artists from Gallery 825 have joined forces to create a unique and interconnected pop-up exhibition called Eight: In the Shadow of Infinity. The exhibit reflects on what we see when we look at the infinite possibilities of this world. The artists in Eight consider everything from the factual realities of our experiences to the magical potential of our mythologies, imaginations, and abstractions. The undeniable component is possibility and is reflected in the symbol eight/infinity.
Artists include: Michael Chieffo, Claire Menegatti, Ara Oshagan, Jennifer E. Padilla, Lori Pond, Melissa Reischman, Olesya Volk and Brenda Welsh.
Eight is a journey from the penetrating character of Claire Menegatti’s portraits, to the existential struggles of Michael Chieffo’s bound man. As Olesya Volk reveals the spirits and characters within the bark of a tree, Melissa Reischman draws us to the soft light and darkness of inviting portals and floral forms. Ara Oshagan reveals the complexities of human existence in his photographs, while Jennifer E. Padilla explores mathematical complexities in pattern and design. Through photos backed in silver leaf, Lori Pond reflects on the Buddhist perspective of living life fully in the light of death, and Brenda Welsh launches us into the infinite realm of abstraction. Some images reveal, while others obscure, but all lead us on a journey of possibilities that exist in the shadow of infinity.
