Georgetown College Fine Art Galleries Presents:
Dian Sourelis: story, myth + memory

story, myth + memory is an ongoing body of work that incorporates found objects and photography. The pieces in this show have been chosen from work I completed over the last 2 years. While they were selected from three separate bodies of work, (“stories”, “the hero’s journey” and “poems from my father”) they all share a common thread.

All of the material in this work is found—from the anonymous black and white photos gathered at yard sales and flea markets—to the reclaimed silk screen, old paper, salvaged canvas and string, and the occasional piece of metal or wood, creating a body of work that is peaceful, yet strong, like the everyday people in the images and the sturdy, well-worn materials that support them.

Georgetown College Fine Art Galleries Presents:
Jonathan McFadden: Der Trend geht hin zur Natürlichkeit/ The trend is towards naturalness

My work explores the deluge of ephemeral text and imagery presented by media and how this cacophony of imagery has altered our understanding of the globalized landscape it presents. The bombardment of information that streams on social media sites and news outlets create a sense of urgency that is intensely focused on the NOW. The often haste and theatric nature of media information elevates the impulsive reaction and dissuades from proper reflection.

Instead of representing a traditional narrative the consumption of information blurs from one source to another flowing from Facebook to Wikipedia to Reddit and other sources of information. This presents us with a fragmented narrative that is layer with preference to what is liked or voted up. Rather than representing this information as ephemeral my print and installation work uses this information to build a physical history built in the layers of information that makes up my visual aesthetic. Blending issues that are viewed as “serious” with the vernacular of Twitter and Facebook, I seek to create imagery that is indicative of contrast between what is considered trivial and significant.
