The latest exhibit, "VIEW FINDER: Constructive Narrative," at C3lab explores the medium of photography as an artistic form. How should they be understood and interpreted? The prevalent belief that photographs accurately depict reality is presented in unique ways by each artist. The medium of photography allows the artist to construct or alter images with realistic visual accuracy, but this imagery is manipulated through the eye of the artist. It is what they allow, exclude or add to the frame that individualizes the final image. Exhibit will be on display through Friday, August 12th. Freehttp://www.c3-lab.com/events/

LaCa Projects proudly presents Repetitions, a solo exhibition featuring works by Argentine artist Santiago Quesnel. This is Quesnel’s second solo show at LaCa Projects. Repetitions is a name that honors Quesnel’s intention to create mutations and variations of the same mental image, resulting in an examination of non-traditional landscapes generated from the intersection of record, experience, and memory. While the ethereal scenes might initially appear conventional, a discovery occurs—a burst of color in an otherwise subdued palette, an object that seems out of place, or subtle traces of human inhabitance, or perhaps, interference.

~Artistic Reflections on Connection~ Coupling of Opposites Across a Multitude of Horizons~ When I learned the term “Non-Duality” everything shifted… To understand life as a synergistic coupling of opposites was unifying, clarifying and uplifting to my Spirit.

We are Co-Creators with God and Universal Principles through what I believe is a rational and conceptual relationship between Destiny and Decision. Nature AND Nurture~ May we All, Always, Pursue greater Depth and Prevail across the Multitude of Horizons into greater Truth, Understanding, Joy and Love~ FREEhttp://www.haylostudiolounge.com
