Dana Bell / Alasdair Duncan / Don Voisine @ Theodore: Art

Dana Bell / Alasdair Duncan / Don Voisine
14 January - 3 March 2012
Opening Reception: January 14, 6 - 8 PM

The unity of the thing remains mysterious as long as one considers its
different qualities as so much data belonging to worlds entirely distinct
from sight, from smell, from touch, etc.
                                                       - Merleau Ponty
Theodore:Art is pleased to present the first exhibition in our new home in Bushwick: work by Dana Bell, Alasdair Duncan, and Don Voisine.

These three artists, while creating very different work, all touch on the possibilities of communicating ideas in a space outside of language. The familiarity of signifiers – form and gesture – is offered without the reliable connection of a signified or finite meaning. A viewer is confronted with evasive focus: unspoken directions, mute expressions, opaque progressions. The potential “unity of the thing” is proffered as a semblance of infinite suggestion.
