36 Views of Mt. Pisgah/Elseetoss features the work of Asheville artist Stephen Lange. The exhibition will be on display in Asheville School’s Crawford Art Gallery April 2-30. Asheville School’s art department will host a public reception at 6:30pm on Thursday, April 2.
Statement from Asheville School’s Art Teacher, Casey Arbor:
With one foot in the past and the other in the future, Lange’s artwork amalgamates both in a unique way. Lange uses a creative technique to embed hidden images in his holographic artwork. It is only when the viewer moves that the hidden image appears. He refers to his work as “four dimensional painting.” Within each image there exists two images. When asked to speak of his work Lange says, “I am creating an art form that not only appeals to the code breaking nature of the human mind, which is wired for pattern recognition; but it is also a technique invented to hide my steps. It seems impossible and that is compelling. Can you think of a better use for modern materials or modern art than distracting us from the digital book of the 21st century?”
