Please join us for Sheppard Fine Arts Gallery’s first exhibition of the 2009-10 Season! Planes of Consistency is a three-person exhibition between Nevada photographer Dean Burton, Seattle video/photographic artist Thom Heileson, and University of Nevada, Reno professor and interdisciplinary sculptor, Tamara Scronce. Artworks include multi-media sculpture, photography and video. The theme was inspired by a philosophical dialogue between Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari, in which they explored the rhizomatic nature of human experience as represented by intersecting lines connecting time, history, intellect, and aliveness. Both philosophers and the three artists examine ways of understanding and visualizing the more remote and abstract elements of our experiences. Burton, Heileson, and Scronce uniquely use repetition, cropping, and editing in a way that undermines presumed context. Context is traditionally understood by surroundings and in relationship to other details, events, or information. Instead, the artists remove that structure in such a way that we are forced to endure the limbo of their content’s existence and come to deeper levels of familiarity. Please join us in the gallery at 5:30pm on opening night to hear the artists talk about their work.
