Join us at the opening reception for the culmination of Paige Bankston’s participation in the Painting M.F.A program at SCAD-Atlanta.

Bankston’s work explores landscapes of the mind, specifically memories of past events and the ways in which these internal records can affect our perception of reality. Using photographs and personal memories for her sources, each of the artist’s paintings evolves by building up countless layers of paint, as well as organic materials and minerals such as wax and rock salt, to create a sense of time and place. Through the layers of paint a dialogue is created between the past and the present to expose thinly veiled fears, phobias, and vices through the use of imagery associated with place and hazy recollections of dreams. Layers are amassed until the semblance of a story begins to unfold, stopping just short from completely revealing itself.
