WITH EASTERN EYES
315 Berry Street - Williamsburg
Elisabeth Condon, Laura Fayer, Liz Insogna
Dan Rosenbaum, Susanna Harwood Rubin
Friday @ 7:30 pm: Reading with John Reed and James Sherry
These artists are heavily influenced by an Eastern aesthetic. They avoid local influences and seek out foreign ones. Though who is to say what is foreign? Many artists have traveled to find the ideas that would excite them, and draw their native intelligence into everyday life. Many people have had to leave home, enter new social circles, or immerse themselves in a new environment to find inspiration, while others may commence a transmission of ideas through books and other cultural sources, building an interior aesthetic. Alienation from one influence does not naturally nor immediately turn us toward another. There is a mute period in between. Yet the influence of an esthetic so powerful as this cannot help but be keenly felt. It projects well in a variety of mediums.
