Heidi Taillefer and Futurology Group Show @ Copro Gallery, Santa MonicaJuxtapoz // Wednesday, 20 Mar 2013
Our friends at Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA will be presenting two new shows on March 23rd: Heidi Taillefer's Land of the Blind, an exhibition of new sculptural works centered around the theme of Eros along with her original oil paintings, and a group show entitled Futurology.
Heidi's original oil paintings are a creative fusion of classical figurative painting, surrealism, contemporary realism and mythology combined with popular figurative traditions ranging from Victorian romanticism to science fiction. Painting subjects comprised of seemingly incongruous objects characterized as symbolic they form a complex composite of various elements and add a contemporary spin to often classical icons.
Futurology deals with the art of Future predictions and changing the Future using current political climate conditions and world trends as a point of departure. Agents of Futurology from the past such as Cleopatra, John Wilkes Booth, Napoleon, Einstein, John Kennedy initiate changes in timelines and effect events hundreds and thousands of years later sometimes referred to as the Butterfly effect. If time travel exists in the future than possibly we have witnessed agents from the future traveling in time to stop a nuclear holocaust that has not yet happened in our present.
