School of Art + Art History alumnus Seamus Liam O’Brien (BFA Art ‘97) will be participating in a two-person exhibition entitled, Fictively Fact, with the artist Ira Marcks at Collar Works Galleryin Troy, New York, Oct. 6-Nov. 2, 2014. The opening reception takes place on Oct. 31 from 5:30-9:00 p.m.
O’Brien and Marcks, the artists in the exhibition Fictively Fact, spend all their time inside this fictionally real paradox. They bring forth from their endless imaginations all matter of realities for this world to navigate and inherit. From the unconscious images we experience as we spin at the circus, to books designed exclusively to chronicle our daydreams, O’Brien and Marcks are lifelong cosmonauts into the space outside of space. The place from which we all came from, but lost, as matter entangles thought and souls become obsessed with time.
