Professor Kristen Letts Kovak‘s work is part of the exhibition “Drawings at the Edge of Perception” at Michigan State University’s (SCENE) Metrospace in East Lansing, MI, on view September 13 through October 25.
In the midst of a technological renaissance there is a seismic shift in our sense of what illusion in art is capable of and how the viewer can interact with it. Curator Benjamin Swallow Duke explores how contemporary artists use drawing or drawing inspired work that explores the boundaries of perception in its broadest sense. From Rorschach to dream imagery, Anamorphosis to optical illusions—this work asks the viewer to confront themselves and the world anew. Visionary work that looks around the corner of possibility, drawings that make visible the boundary of what it means to see.
