The Janus Exhibition by Dr. Allan M. Gordon at The Brickhouse Gallery

Friday, November 5, 2021, 1:00 AM - 4:00 AM

Join The Brickhouse Gallery & Art Complex for the Opening Artist Reception of "The Janus Exhibition" by Dr. Allan M. Gordon, our second exhibit since the pandemic. This exhibit explores more than one medium to dive into some thought provoking subject matter. Dr. Gordon is Professor Emeritus of, California State University, Sacramento. The exhibit runs from September 10, 2021 until November 5, 2021. Gallery hours are Thurs.-Fri. noon -6pm and Sat. Noon - 7pm . Artist Statement: The art objects that I make are intended to provide a unique experience for the viewer that can only be obtained from carefully and intently looking at visual works of art. I am indebted to those artists who changed the boundaries of what is considered art because my work is informed by many of their tenets. This would include those artists associated with Surrealism, Dadaism, Conceptualism; Marcel Duchamp, certain west African practices and appropriations. The most recent works are experiments in what I call visual deconstruction. This differs from literary deconstruction which intends to take apart the text in order to find a new meaning. Visual deconstruction intends to obscure or make the image less obvious. Marks or other objects become an appendage, an accessory, or a deliberate intrusion as they displace the everyday familiar object in unexpected juxtapositions. This not only makes the object appear absurd but it also often reveals something about the object that makes it appear as being mysterious. Do not ask "What does it mean?" The meaning is multivalent. Therefore, the meaning essentially resides in the perception and responses the piece elicits from each viewer. Nor does the title assigned to the work indicate the meaning of the work. The titles of the works tend to be more of a convenient vehicle to identify one work from another rather than to provide some clue that intends to direct your response to the work. Art is Long but Time is Fleeting
