LOOK AT ME is about seeing and being seen: This exhibit asks the viewer to
go beyond judgement to become aware of what is seen, how something is seen,
while actively engaging in the experience of the outward—and inward—gaze.
Kris Campbell creates meaningful visual experiences that connect to the
soul, time, space, and the human experience. Campbell takes a delicate,
nominal craft, and, using yarn on screen assembles large works that take up
space and demand to be seen. The consistent cross stitch throughout creates
a smooth surface that highlights the color variation, evoking waves of
light, and molecular energy. In some places the screen is left bare,
allowing for a space beyond the surface of the work to be seen in the way a
soul searches beyond the surface.
LOOK AT ME’s pieces were selected for inclusion to invite the gaze: The
Shephard beckons; See Me confronts; Me,Too accepts; Fairy Light basks; The
Doll (work on paper) questions the value of the gaze. Campbell invites the
viewer to suspend judgement and look at—and through— the work, and within.
Also, on exhibit: Contemporary Hudson Valley Artist: the Faculty Exhibit
and The Feminine Perception: Beauty and Nonsense, works by Leslie Fandrich.
Free to the general public.
Gallery hours are: Mon.-Fri. 10am-4pm; and Sat.1-4pm.
