Everything Is Melting: A Psychedelic Art Show says
Psychedelia is synonymous with the underground culture of the mid to late 1960’s, but this isn’t a nostalgic trip. Everything is Melting presents the work of four Atlanta artists who interpret the psychedelic experience in their unique way.


“Dream in a pragmatic way”
Aldous Huxley


Psychedelia has evolved to an art form connected deeply to our psyche. Hallucinations are defined as seeing things that are not there, a change in perception; light and time distorted, sensations warped and reconstructed.


“Tune in' meant interact harmoniously with the world around you—externalize, materialize, express your new internal perspectives.”
Timothy Leary


This art show hopes to evoke a synesthetic illusion. See these confections of color and explore the diverse panoramas of these artists. No psychoactive ingredients necessary. Only your imagination.


"What Is the Light?" ("An Untested Hypothesis Suggesting That the Chemical [In Our Brains] by Which We Are Able to Experience the Sensation of Being in Love Is the Same Chemical That Caused the "Big Bang" That Was the Birth of the Accelerating Universe")

Wayne Coyne


Featured artists:

Decatur artist Mike Fink is drawn to spirals, swirls, and circles as well as shapes found in cultures around the world. He draws inspiration from natural surroundings as well as experiences growing up in Ventura County, California and living in Andalucia, Spain. His highest aim is for his work to be a portal to connect, reveal and channel the Flow of Life.


Susan Knippenberg is an emerging visual and performing artist residing in Atlanta, GA. Primarily focused on creating a gateway between reality and the innermost psyche through visual expression, Susan relies on discovering an emotional connection between personal experience and the natural and spiritual world. She earned her Bachelor's Degree of Fine Arts at Georgia State University's Ernest G. Welsch School of Art & Design with a concentration in drawing and painting, and is currently working alongside environmental artist, Pam Longobardi while building her own body of work and performances.


New to Atlanta, Shanee Navarro has recently started working with acrylics over found objects. She has transferred her pointillism style to sculptures as well as blocks of wood. Most of her pieces were found or dug up from curbside-giveaways, and then enhanced with paint and adhered into a piece of art, including her 3D collage of toy animals. Her sculpture of animals and insects can sometimes be found scattered around East Atlanta.


M.A. Torres is a writer and photographer. Painting is the palate cleanser between the two. He has recently added photo collage to his style of dripping, melting canvases.
"It's all just a distraction."


Atlanta artist Heather Greenway will be providing lightshow projections.
