Lifted Lab, Black Sheep, and Culture Initiative present: "Duplicate of a Duplicate" in Charlotte, NC this Friday, January 15. This is a group show curated by Infamous JeanClaude and will be held at Black Sheep skate shop.
Duplicate of a Duplicate is a group show loosely based around the quote from Salvador Dali that says “What is a television apparatus to man, who has only to shut his eyes to see the most inaccessible regions of the seen and the never seen, who has only to imagine in order to pierce through walls and cause all the planetary Baghdads of his dreams to rise from the dust.”
For artists, there are many things that inspire them to create. From music to conversations, one little moment can spark an idea or image forcing an artist to quickly jot down that idea before they forget. Author David Bayles explains.” Imagination is in control (when creating)… the artworks potential is never higher than in the magic moment when the first brushstroke is applied.” Artists live in a world of spontaneity and inspired moments. Our ability to capture these moments gives us the unnatural ability to freeze time, something like a lens.
Our minds run as a fast pace that requires use to use them as cameras, duplicating these thoughts onto sketchbooks, computers, canvas, and print.
