Art by Clementine: Hamptons Exhibition Opening Night
August 7, 2021 @ 5:00 PM - 7:00 PM
Quogue gallery is pleased to present “Clementine: Selfless in a Selfie World”. The exhibition will feature 15 works newly created by the artist.
The artist says about her “art filter” body of work, “I am intrigued by how I can reflect our social media era in a fine art form. This Series is comprised of interchangeable art filters that overlay paintings, instantly transforming them, just as with digital filters in platforms such as Instagram. Filter paintings represent social media symbols, such as the conspicuous selfie pucker.”
Clementine employs her “art filter” technique in her new “Selfless” Series. In the Series, she journeys to remote villages in third world nations to photograph humanitarian challenges and give hidden stories voice through her art. Melding photography into paintings on canvas, Clementine thereafter overlays an art filter that is representative of our social media obsessed society. The resulting message: Look beyond the self and at others in the world who truly need our attention.
“Selfless in a Selfie World” is a series to raise the consciousness of society, embracing what it means to move beyond narcissism and towards human connection.
