Through allegory and varying positions of narrative, LaBier, Mills and Talepasand open a window into the human consciousness. Playing with imagery, each of the three artists in this exhibition conjures scenes in their work that are at once discernable and askew. LaBier, in oil painting and a suite of color pencil drawings, depicts crude, exaggerated figures that, with a subtle sense of humor and faux historicism, present a mysticism not unlike that found in the work of the Symbolist painters. Mills, too, utilizes allegorical symbolism in his oil paintings. Through his nocturnal scenes, Mills evokes solitude and vulnerability. Trained in Persian miniature painting, Talepasand will present four highly detailed graphite drawings. Each of these works, entirely made up of female protagonists (the artist herself), investigate taboos between eastern and western cultures.
