Three dynamic shows launch SooVAC’s spring exhibition series, all with arresting perspectives on damage (cultural, societal, and personal), darkness, and a sense of reinvention. Syed Hosain’s abstractions suggest the crumbling of civilizations, the beauty inherent in ruins, and the sorrow of lost homelands. Amanda Hamilton’s paintings delve into the sensations created in darkness, with a rich material palette that includes volcanic black salt, dust, mica, powdered graphite, and charcoal. Meanwhile, Mary Gibney will undertake a five-week residency during which she’ll create an onsite exhibition, exploring layers of self, that is infused with voyeurism and spectacle.
