Through My Eyes

Pepe Hidalgo | Sidi Chen
September 16, 2017 - October 17, 2017

In Through My Eyes, two artists express aspects of their personal history and culture, inviting the viewer to experience the world as seen by someone else. Drawing inspiration from their everyday lives, artists Lianne Mitchell and Alex Stewart use found objects and unexpected materials as the bases of their artistic expression. Lianne Mitchell’s sculptures are assembled from objects collected during the many hours spent walking in urban and natural environments, assembled to reflect the world at large and the issues facing our culture today. Alex Stewart uses his skill in automotive and industrial painting to inform his style and approach to art. Using steel, wood, spraypaint and collage, he crafts intricate portraits that reveal the complexity of human emotion. Reworked and Reassembled invites viewers into a new way of thinking when it comes to materials and everyday living.
