Parallels (Duo Show)

  • University of Houston 4188 Elgin Street Houston, TX, 77004 United States (map)

Duo show by second year graduate painters Angel Castelán and Erin Carty.

Artist Reception: Wednesday October 25th from 5:30-7:30pm at the Third Space Gallery at the University of Houston (3rd floor of the School of Art). 

Collectively, the work explores the relationships between people (be it through multiple figures or having the viewer take the place of the painter) and the space they exist in. By depicting moments of varying intimacy, it allows the viewer to step into the lives of strangers and insert themselves into very intimate moments. Each artist presents his or her take on interpersonal relationships through the depiction of moments captured from their daily lives. Through these depictions, the artists are able to showcase to their viewers commonalities between the viewers, the artworks and the artists.
