The Reroute / Day & Night Projects / Opening Reception says
Tempus Projects presents, The Reroute, a group exhibition of Day & Night Projects founding members: Steven L. Anderson, William Downs, Mark Leibert, and Tori Tinsley.

The Reroute might refer to the constant rerouting involved in navigating Day & Night’s hometown of Atlanta’s crippled interstate system or the negotiation with political and personal landscape. In a similar vein, these artists explore new terrain related to the well-traveled areas of the human figure, the kitsch imagery, interpersonal relationships, and man’s discourse with nature.

Steven L. Anderson’s Tree Ring artworks equate the generative process of nature to a meditative human practice.

Mark Leibert’s “On Palms“ explore the coconut trees of his youth in Honolulu. The images challenge a theme often relegated to kitsch and the exotic. Painting with hand-processed oils, pigments, and spray paint on canvas, Leibert catches his tentative subject somewhere between vanishing and appearing.

Tori Tinsley’s acrylic paintings explore the changing relationship between two figures. The push and the pull, the ups and the downs, the good and the bad.
William Downs uses the figure as a foundation to build bodies and landscapes.

The exhibition is sponsored in part by The Gobioff Foundation, The Arts Council of Hillsborough County, Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation, The Knox Family Foundation, and Mermaid Tavern. Please join us for an afterparty at the Mermaid Tavern directly following the reception at 9pm.
