Arlington Exhibition: Emma Cregan and Johab Silva
Arlington artists Emma Cregan and Johab Silva were selected to be showcased in the Arlington Open Call 2019 Exhibition at Cody Gallery at Marymount University.
The work of Cregan and Silva intersect at various points visually and conceptually. Emma Cregan's stop motion videos "Escaping Blade", "Escaping Soil" and "Escaping Surface" are experimentations of long shutter speeds. The images are captured fragments re-interpreted with the use of light, allowing our perception of the environment and reality to become abstracted. Johab Silva's paintings on panel are inspired from his travels to the Amazon rainforest and the impact of human presence and the environment. The artist will also create a site specific installation in the University stairwell with lightweight plastic materials. Together, the work of these artists allow us to slow down and re-interpret the environment around us.
