Conduit Gallery presents Project Room - Christopher Mir: "Dream Sequence" opening day
Conduit Gallery will present the opening of "Dream Sequence," an exhibition of paintings by Connecticut-based artist Christopher Mir. This will be the first exhibition in Dallas for Mir.
For his paintings, Mir has woven together images from across the digital landscape. Together the wayward glances and stoic scenes become cinematic dreams. Some of these are darkened in the foreground, seemingly lit from behind and overcast. The liminal space that the canvas can provide, one in between waking reality and pictorial representation, is at play here. What is the story that we’re tuning into? There are onlookers and witnesses, from the sordid gaze of anonymous human figures to the passive gaze of birds in trees.
Within each painting and taken collectively, Mir is able to convey the power of storytelling to conjure the academic as well as the mystical.
The exhibition will remain on display through November 28. The gallery is open by appointment only.
