Gazelli Art House presents I See Faces.
Who keeps us company while we are confined indoors and isolated? Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon of assigning living characteristics to everyday objects. This online exhibition of portraits that are not portraits. Featured artists: Andy Warhol, Banksy, Derek Boshier, Jane McAdam Freud, Keith Haring, Shan Hur, KAWS, Kalliopi Lemos and Giovanni Ozzola.
Contemporarily, we find ourselves in trying times, in need of both comfort and company. I See Faces explores Pareidolia and its endless possibilities. The exhibition is a tonic for the brain, presenting works that prompt us to solve problems and interpret patterns which have been proven to reduce uncertainty, anxiety and to help us make sense of our surrounding environments and situations. The spilt liquid in Andy Warhol’s New Coke Drawing (1985), becomes a fizzing face brought to life the more one stares. While Lost Time, Alone Again, Far Far Down by KAWS is fragmented into multiple visages in an acrylic techno scene.
