CURRENT EXHIBIT:

"What Brings Me Joy"

Exhibit by Emily Mitchell Studios

"Last Words [sic]" (2017)

Film by Hugo Ljungbäck

 

    

 

 SEABA and Main Street Landing would like to welcome Richmond Artist, Emily Mitchell and her exhibit "What Brings Me Joy".  We would also like to welcome Swedish artist, Hugo Ljungbäck and his video installation piece "Last Words [sic] " (2017). 
 
In her newest collection of acrylic paintings, Emily Mitchell, continues to create colorful stories about aspects of life which bring joy, love and appreciation. This current collection has a renewed sense of calm, peace and celebration of the things which lift us all up and provide a visual break from contemporary, complex issues.

Emily Mitchell’s acrylic paintings are a vibrant celebration of love, nature and relationships. Through the development of many layers of paint and marks on the canvas, she weaves layered and complex narratives.  Deep within her layers of paint, are the layers within of all of us – thin and thick, complex, translucent skins of color and texture, masking, but not eliminating, our shared experiences, feelings and moments.

Hugo Ljungbäck’s work regularly explores queer subjectivities through a personal lens. He is interested in countering images of oversexed gay youth, offering instead portraits of the privately hidden, the truly intimate, the often unflattering, and the unseen: infidelity, sexual abuse, and coercion. His work is durational, gestural, and performative, and he often makes himself the subject of his camera. As such, he blurs the boundary between documentation and reenactment, and ideas of authenticity, reality, and artifice are always at stake.

In Last Words [sic], the artist revisits an email he received from a past lover. The text is taken verbatim from a goodbye-letter, and tells a humorously painful story of lost love, betrayal, and desire, as the delusional writer grows increasingly passive-aggressive with every paragraph. Last Words [sic] is the first part of a series of short, text-based video works.

  

Please join us for the Reception, Friday April 5th, 5-8pm. Exhibit runs through end of April.
