The Search of the Familiar: Portraits by Allen TenBusschen


May 13-27th, 2016

Closing reception: May 27th, 6-8p

"The patterns that you find throughout my work are a reminder of our varied but similar structure. The subtle differences can, in time, create such vast expanses between individuals that it becomes hard to see their similarities. My work positions these variations next to each other in order to invite the connection. Our differences only subtly mask the commonality between us. I want to connect seemingly unconnected people through my work. I think a portrait is not just a likeness of someone, but a small glimpse of how related humanity truly is"
