Friday, March 4th 6 p.m. – 10 p.m.
Jackson Hunt and Mariah Tate Klemens met through mutual friends in July 2015. It was immediately clear through studio visits, and discussions about art that the two wanted to participate in a shared exhibition. Blue functions as a collaborative project, both artists making work they likely would not have without the input of the other, exploring events from the summer of 2015 and earlier.
Blue reminds us of the life one could have had – an exploration of disappointment and the desire for growth. The work in Blue describes lives and objects, constantly in decay, commemorating nostalgia. Failure in the structure of objects and visual descriptions of lost potential are all displayed in the color blue. Collaborators Jackson Hunt and Mariah Tate Klemens explore blue with photorealistic paintings, cast objects, and live plants. Throughout the month of March, the work in Blue will literally grow and decay.
