July 21 – August 12, 2018
Opening Reception: July 21, 2 – 5 PM
BioIntervals is a continuation of Kelly Cade’s practice of abstracting photographic images to create new landscapes. These new works are intended to be points of entry into the quandary of measurement and meaning, and to underline the invented nature of such paracosms.
BioIntervals explores the intersection of our created intervals — our systems of measurement — and how they shape our experience of nature. It examines how our impulse to measure, categorize and define the natural world may in fact dissociate us further from that which we are trying to understand.
In these works, linear patterns reveal inscriptions of meaning that overcode what lies beneath. Iridescent circles reflect our attraction to distraction, and our attraction to measurement as a system with its own internal logic.
These random geometric interventions of curved trajectories allow for a constantly shifting focus, suggesting a new dimension for inward and outward telescopings, as we continually search for meaning and place.
