I am honored to invite everyone to Urban Durham Realty, and join us for the opening reception of my work “signal-to-noise” as part of this month’s #thirdfridaydurham events. I cannot wait to meet, greet, and talk to you in person. Also on offer will be archival inkjet reproduction prints available for purchase in limited release, signed and sleeved. We hope to see you there!

About the Exhibition:

The collection reveals a version of Durham’s self. The ones seen and forward-facing, and the ones which are enmeshed within multiple layers of difficult history. These facets converge upon, through, and overlap alongside modern narratives in the making. When we find ourselves in front of these scenes, we can almost perceive the unseen connective energies linking places and memory.

We are in a very specific era of disconnection and disarray, and being a witness to these places, allows us the opportunity to be a part of the transformation of everyday scenery. Seeming chaos explodes all around, re-forms into connection, then sinks into contemplation, and perhaps even hopeful conversation. We ourselves mirror this unease in a time of uncertainty and reimagining, in a world who has no choice but to move forward, no matter the discomfort of the present moment.

This will be for people who follow their curiosities with intention; who look between the slats of construction fences, who have an appreciation for past histories and landmarks, and who possess the ability to see what lies beyond the façade of the modern. For those who have the chance to experience the work, I would love them to be able to feel an immersion into a world of observation, place, memory, and connectivity.
