Colin Curry: Misperceptions


February 9th through February 28th, 2017

Opening Reception Thursday Feb 9th5 – 9 PM

New work by Colin Curry explores memories revisited. With every retelling, the features we originally celebrate appear clearer and the less convenient aspects become muddled, like a sensitive lens that is handled with bare hands. We are the unreliable narrators of our own lives, adding, omitting, and editing details unconsciously. These paintings initially begin with observation, but with each subsequent layer, become less about emulating reality as they are marred with misperceptions.

Colin Curry is a Seattle-based painter concerned primarily with bodies, gaze, gender, and the politics of perception. The last thing he thinks about before he falls asleep is color and light, and the first thing he thinks of when he wakes is the smell of linseed oil and coffee.
