Adam D. Wiseman: fat palimpsest, 1977
Opening Reception: Friday,March 1st, 6-9 p.m
Gallery Hop: Friday, March 15th, 5-8 p.m.
Within the study of architecture, a palimpsest is an object, building, city, or work of art that was constructed and intended for one use, then later manipulated or worked on again for another. When analyzed archaeologically and philosophically, palimpsests serve as contradictory artifacts, compressing opposing creative time sequences that most often reveal neither...but also, both.
Not unlike the entanglement of sounds one can imagine hearing from terrestrial radio transmissions observed light-years away from Earth, by recreating the layered chronology of the palimpsest, these paintings intend to depict coagulated architectural space that originated in my birth year, 1977.
