Art Opening: Andy Tedesco
January 20, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us for the opening exhibition for a solo show by Andy Tedesco:
Dead Space: The Ending is Only the Beginning
Images and lyrics get assigned to memories. The return to places that are coincidentally familiar. That place where I left her, even though she was gone before I ever got there. To physically not be able to hold up my own weight; to feel powerless. Some claim the fear of losing a parent is almost paralyzing. I can only speak from this experience; nothing will prepare you for this.
Within the studio, I am focusing on the element of space so that it creates a pulsating environment for the figure. This cold sterility and weariness is what I am evoking into the space along with figures that are stand-ins, signifiers of a culture to which I have lost my most immediate tie. The narrative I am exploring is very direct, a dead culture within a dead space.
