Kevin Cooley & Phillip Andrew Lewis
UNEXPLORED TERRITORY
January 11th – February 22nd, 2014

Gallery will present UNEXPLORED TERRITORY, an interdisciplinary campaign charting the limits of human exploration and our desire to conquer and control nature by Kevin Cooley and Phillip Andrew Lewis. Working with a set of themes ranging from early control of fire, colonial exploration of the American West, harnessing fire in the form of combustion to launch rockets into space, to anthropomorphic actions of everyday objects such as box fans, and helium balloons, this body of work exposes a layered relationship between technology’s abstractions and certain universal truths.

Encompassing photographs, photograms, videos, and works on paper, this collection of disparate, yet interconnected work is an attempt to understand how everything has the potential to be simultaneously beautiful and destructive. Through figurative and metaphorical gestures and the power of direct representation, the artists’ work navigates this terrain without repetition of subject matter, offering the viewer a multifaceted window into their artistic space.
