When we seek a resolution, we look for the answer to a tough question, the action towards problem-solving. While it is debatable to call the contemporary artist a problem solver, in this group exhibition, each work poses a question or proposes a solution.
When we talk about resolution, we talk about pixels, the degree of clearness in which an image is perceived. Here, perception is in hi-res, shared by artists working across a wide range of media.
To make a resolution is to create goals for accomplishment. New year’s resolutions transform trifles to ceremonial events. In this exhibition, mundane objects spark meticulous study and bold experimentation. The artist empowers.
