featuring work by
Casey Arguelles Gregory
Mimi Kato and Casey Arguelles Gregory’s divergent media and aesthetics find common ground in their connection to narrative.
"Constructed Lore" features Kato’s large-scale photographs and Gregory’s heavily impastoed canvases. Kato casts herself in many roles in her highly stylized compositions. She references Japanese woodblock printing with a heavy dose of humor and singular storytelling.
Providing a visual contrast are Casey Arguelles Gregory’s colorful paintings, which investigate the structure of myth. These canvases are emblazoned with heavily loaded words such
as “hero” or “liberty.” The texts are then alternately buried or revealed through frosting-like layers of paint.
