Non-Fiction Gallery is pleased to announce Proclivity, a multi-disciplinary group exhibition from Friday May 27th until Monday May 30th, 2016. The exhibition features the work of four emerging artists, Emily Beasley, Thomas Flynn II, Christopher Mark, and Katie Smith-Day. The opening reception takes place on Friday, May 27th from 6pm to 9pm, and an artist talk will take place on Saturday May 28th from 1-2pm and both are free and open to the public.
A proclivity is a tendency to choose or do something regularly; an inclination or predisposition toward a particular thing. Habitual cycles proliferate throughout daily activities and decision making. Each artist featured in this exhibition explores these tendencies in their practice. Beasley creates paintings that are abstractions of chance moments in life. Flynn is engaged in dialogue with the barrier between the natural world and the imposed constructs of contemporary society. Mark focuses on reaching the essence of invisible energy by inventing interconnecting forms that are suggestions of self-referential patterns. Smith-Day is exploring the manifestation of aura in person- al objects and in the monumental. Painting, sculpture, installation, and video are presented as a discussion on these proclivities.
