Antler says
Antler Gallery is thrilled to announce details of our latest exhibition, a three-person show opening on Thursday, May 25th at 6pm. “Under the Harrow” aims to explore what is happening beneath the surface of the current socio-political climate. Works from Atelierbetriebe Allison Sommers, Kaspian Shore, and Christina Mrozik Art are bound together by an exploration of the complexities of humanity and our innate desire to search out seeds of hope in even the least fertile ground.

Allison Sommers’ work is steeped in historical objects and references, imploring the viewer to examine the past as a means of understanding the present. Zeppelins, religious icons and ephemera abound within an imagined world which is in a state of steady decay. She possesses an old-world quality that is apparent not only in her subject matter but also in her muted palette and distinctive style.

If Sommers’ inclination is toward the retrospective then Chritina Mrozik, by contrast, takes an introspective approach to her pieces. Her inspiration comes from exploring the human experience and looking inward as a means of making sense of the world that surrounds you. The fragility and strength of the individual are depicted through delicate, metaphorical studies.

While the past and the present are integral themes for Sommers and Mrozik respectively, Kaspian Shore focuses on the possibilities of a world yet to come. His haunting and poignant portraits featuring androgynous figures, reflect the subject of gender outside of binary norms. This work offers a view toward a future where identity and acceptance move beyond current stereotypes.
