Anamorphic Portraiture

September 24 – October 29, 2021

Mirus Gallery brings the acclaimed Anamorphic Portraiture exhibition to Denver opening September 24, 7-10pm.

About the Exhibition:

Anamorphic Portraiture is a dynamic exhibition featuring acclaimed international and regional contemporary artists working within the realm of disrupted portraiture. We currently live in a world wrought with overstimulation, rapid consumption, and mental illness that often causes one to question what defines an individual’s sense of identity. Science has shown that identity is largely tied to perceptual and neurological representation of facial features. This exhibition brings into question what part of identity is brought to surface or manipulated when the facial features of a figure are morphed, de/re-constructed, or masked.  The artists exhibiting in this group consistently use methods of abstraction to create portraits representing facial tensions of inner conflict, emotional confusion, mental anguish, existential dread or even psychosis.

Featured Artists:

Alexis Matta, Ali Asir, Cristian Blanxer, David Crunelle, Dourone, Einar Ōlafsson, Eva Rdamonti, Fintan Switzer, Gera1, Li Hill, Michalis Goumas, Pablo Merchante, Riso Chan, Shintaro Kago

Opening Reception: Friday September 24, 7-10pm

On View Through:  October 29, 2021
