On View May 4, 2018 - May 6, 2018
Opening Reception May 4, 2018 | 6 pm - 9 pm
Curated by Stephanie Edwards of Leto Projects, Semantic Shifts is a pop-up solo exhibition of artworks by Trevor Seymour. Semantic Shifts examines the relationship between our thoughts, associations, and connotations with words and images to create unique meaning. Seymour works in a variety of media, like drawing, sculpture, video, and found objects that juxtapose randomly generated adjectives and images. The resulting artwork shows a lack of control in the artistic process of meaning making. This leaves space for viewers to draw their own conclusions about each juxtaposition by bringing forward their own associations with the artwork. Seymour explains, “I hope to create work that conceptually engages the viewer to question how their experiences influence connections and associations they make in visual media.” Seymour hopes that viewers create their own subtle Semantic Shifts by tailoring their individual definitions of words and objects.
