"Do I know you?" is a rather common form of address. When we are mistaken for someone else, we may be reminded of our random status, and interchangeability. Although such interactions are often awkward, it can also be pleasant to muse for a moment, long enough to explore the possibility of being someone else.

This exhibition of paintings and sculptures examines identity and the embodiment of human presence. Historically "altars" were representations of spiritual beings, and thus provided a kind of portal to another world. Similar to the silhouette of a person, the altar is vertical and hierarchical, placed in a prominent location, and symbolizes a divine presence through visual language.

In our personal relationships, we often express love as a divine impulse. Evidence of human desire is readily observed in the memorialization of the deceased. What was once tangible is made invisible through death, though reconstituted in the form of art. In these paintings and sculptures, the memory of a beloved person becomes manifest, embodied, internal, and vestigial.

Carol Barbour, 2018.
