Outside the Box
September 5 @ 11:00 AM - September 27 @ 6:00 PM
Agora Gallery is pleased to announce Outside the Box, a group exhibition of paintings and sculptures that challenge physical and psychological limitations of thought, environment, and form. All of us feel trapped in one way or another, at one point in our lives, confronted with external or internal impediments that prevent us from moving forward, whether real or imaginary. Under particular circumstances, we may feel as if we were locked inside a box. This box can take tangible form–the walls of a home, a hospital bed, or the rigid structure of straight lines–or come from within, as a result of obsessions, anguish, depression, and other mental disorders.
The works on display alternate between depictions of captivity and escape, as offered by dreams and open natural spaces. They delve into the intricacies of the human condition, capturing the struggles we face and the desire for liberation. Through a wide array of media and styles–expressionist abstractions, PVC sculptures as well as oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings–the participating artists reveal the raw emotions associated with confinement, inviting viewers to embrace vulnerability and find solace in the pursuit of freedom.
