Surface with an Opening by Eric Mcgehearty
Reception Saturday November 14th at The McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Live webcam from inside the mouth, of a piece of artwork!
Surface with an Opening by Eric McGehearty is an exhibition in which the artist takes a radically different direction. His much-anticipated body of work is a long departure from his “books” series. Eric uses the human mouth as a vehicle to explore the viewer’s visceral experience to his work. The artist refuses to go into detail about his newest pieces, as he waits for the public response.
Eric McGehearty has an MFA in Sculpture from University of North Texas in Denton and a Bachelor in Arts from University of the Ozarks in Clarksville, Arkansas. His work has been shown at the Gerald Peters Gallery, in Dallas, John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, DC; the Armory Show in New York, and the Piedmont Arts Museum in Virginia. He lives and works in Lewisville, Texas.
McGehearty. as an artist with dyslexia, explores the worlds of illegibility and inaccessibility. He views his work as a visual branch of semiotics (the theory and study of signs and symbols) that embraces both formal and conceptual contradiction.
Hope to see you at the opening !
