About Sensorial Perspectives: Experience of the Body

This December Agora Gallery presents Sensorial Perspectives, an exciting new collective exhibition that works to immerse the viewer, one physical sensation at a time. Five painters, two mixed-media artists, and one photographer offer work that challenge the traditional understanding of art as a purely visual medium. No fewer than four abstract artists are featured; they share a skillful use of bold colors and large-scale shapes but each differs in the emotional appeal to viewers. These painters show us the different ways color can shoot straight past the eyes to raise hairs on the skin and cause tingles beneath it. The exhibition’s representational works also aim to make the viewer experience rather than look. One artist puts realistic figures against backgrounds of bubbling, exquisite clouds of reds and blues that communicate speed and movement. Another offers sharply contrasted, multicolor portraits that convey the presence of another person. The exhibition’s photography show us the world from a human’s eye point of view, with no more context and no more clarity than a person walking through would possess.
