Steve Mennie: Reasonable Facsimiles & Unintended Consequences

Opening Reception: Saturday, May 4, 2019 from 2-5PM
artist talk at 3PM
Steve Mennie is drawn both to realistic imagery and abstraction. The draw for each of these approaches in art is that of different/unique ways; one from a chosen and set subject (a recognizable/ believable real subject) and the other through risk, chance, and openness to suggestion. This exhibition explores these two extremes for Steve Mennie.
“…for me, I would say that the fundamental difference between completing a realist image (for want of a better expression) and an abstract (or non-figurative) image is one of construction vs. manifestation.” - Mennie
