Mirus Gallery has invited several artists to participate in “Aletheia” a group exhibition titled after “a Greek word variously translated as “unclosedness”, “unconcealedness”, “disclosure” or “truth”. The literal meaning of the word ἀ–λήθεια is “the state of not being hidden; the state of being evident.” It also means factuality or reality.” When confronted with the roster of exhibiting artists you can relate the level of realism in each of their work. Yet you will have to dig deeper when viewing and establish an understanding of this new unconcealedness.
“Aletheia” opens the conversation about truth through the idea of representation and realism. In our new age of abstract art and postmodern conceptualism artists that work with realist work has taken a backseat to these emerging art forms. With this exhibition we take a deeper look into emerging realist painters in a postmodern landscape of theory and critical discussion. We challenge you to take a deeper look into these realist painters, look for a deeper truth or “Aletheia” in each artists work.
Participating Artist: Cristian Blanxer (Spain), Daniel Munoz (Spain), Drew Merritt (USA), Drew Young (Canada), Helen Bur (United Kingdom), Jose Luis Ceña Ruiz (Spain), Norberto Gonzalez (Spain), Paulo Sierra (Peru), and Thomas Cian (Italy).
