Sharon Core (b. 1965, New Orleans, LA) astutely interrogates authenticity, authorship, and photographic truth in her works that recreate canonical scenes in art history. For the series featured in this exhibition, Core stages Claes Oldenburg’s iconic plaster and cloth sculptures of American food with the foods themselves, capturing their humorously glistening and sagging forms on a massive scale. Where Oldenburg sought to make art of the commonplace and unexceptional, Core returns the high art sculpture to its biodegradable source material.

Ted Kincaid (b. 1966, Chattanooga, TN) systematically subverts the notion of photography as truth in his digital dissections of skyscapes. Working from his own photographs and adapting skies from the paintings of canonical artists, Kincaid stitches together entirely new painterly pixel-based renditions. His art investigates the play between painting and photography, creating a new definition of painting informed by photo-imagery and a new photography influenced by painting.

Rachel Perry‘s (b. 1962, Tokyo, Japan) photographs in this exhibition are from the series Lost in my Life (2009-2012) in which the artist transforms unremarkable relics of quotidian life into whimsically captivating forms that caress and engulf her body. Perry’s self-portraits that are meticulously strewn with takeout containers and twist ties highlight the homogenizing force of consumerism over personal identity. The artfully crumpled tin foil and overflowing receipts fantastically remind viewers of the endless cyclical acts of purchasing, collecting, and purging of consumer goods.
