KEVIN HOOYMAN – ‘DARK WALK ‘
SEPT 13 – OCT 18, 2008
PROOF GALLERY – located at The Distillery – 516 E. 2nd St. – SOUTH BOSTON, MASS.
from the press release:
“Proof Gallery is thrilled to present the Boston solo debut of BROOKLYN-based KEVIN HOOYMAN.
The exhibition, ‘Dark Walk’ is inspired by the artist’s memories of youthful late night “sensory deprivation” walks in the wilderness with friends. During these walks the “real” world slips into an imagined world, merging memory and invention. In ‘Dark Walk’, emissaries from this altered state beckon with promises of mystical communication. Lusciously elaborate flora and fauna are captured from Hooyman’s everyday surroundings but the fantastical creeps into the actual. As audience, our observation morphs into participation. The drawings both enact and document the seductive experience of this fertile world between worlds.” RIGHT ON !!
