Mathew Zefeldt in Staring at the Sun
Big Pictures Los Angeles is pleased to announce “Staring at the Sun,” a Group exhibition featuring the work of Aramis Gutierrez, Aaron Morse, Ariana Papademetropoulos, and Mathew Zefeldt (MFA 2011).
Throughout the course of human history, the sun has been our measure of time – whether in days or years, we define our sense of time according to its perceived cycles. Many cultures have deified the sun, proclaiming it a sustenance provider, a light-bearer, and a caretaker of mankind. Throughout the centuries, seekers have sought more mystic relationships with it, praying to the moon and the stars, waiting for perfect alignments to make wishes and bring good fortune. Still others see it as a portal, the opposite end of a black hole. The artists’ works in this show explore the transcendental journey of man across time, our quest for knowledge, and the desire to live beyond our own time.
