October 24 - November 21, 2020
A solo exhibition featuring work by Adreon Henry.
From the gallery:
“Intersecting Stories in Superposition is on view at CAMIBAart Gallery from October 24th through November 21st, 2020. In this exhibit, Austin based artist Adreon Henry uses his signature painting, printing, weaving and sanding methods, to create artworks that investigate the intersection of stories or paths or perspectives. In the most basic form, these intersecting stories can be represented by the weaving together of geometric pictographs in which some aspects line up while others don’t. Some ideas coincide, some paths cross, some stories intersect, some planes collide… and others don’t.
Superposition is the act of placing one thing on or above another, especially so that they coincide. In quantum physics, the theory called Superposition is likened to a coin being flipped in the air; when it’s in the air it is both heads and tails, with each having equal probabilities, before landing on one side or the other ~ similar to Schrodinger’s cat theory. In other words, simply looking at matter actually changes the outcome of what happens to it. In the same way, the artworks in this exhibition expose two sides at once, revealing two experiences that are happening simultaneously, ultimately being the product of the intersection.

In his own words:
For my woven artworks, a major part of the message conveyed by each piece rests in the process. For me, the initial pieces of vinyl are likened to an experience or occurrence. When the strips of vinyl are cut and woven onto the frame, the primary experience is scrambled. I relate this to an individual perspective of the aforementioned experience; some things are remembered while others are lost. The process of adding coats of paint can be likened to the addition of time. The final stage of sanding uncovers the experience or event and is how it is remembered in the present time. The memory, like the painting, pieces together elements, images and feelings; some obscured, some uncovered, all telling a story.”
