Repetition, variation, and obsession are patterns that readily emerge among these contributions to InLiquid's member exhibition, "Inside Out." The psychological lure of a particular geographical or imagined space that begs to be explored and re-explored. A singularly fascinating subject or form that repeatedly surfaces in bodies of work over time. The therapeutic working and re-working of a single idea. The re-living of a memory that has become lodged in one's mind and simply refuses be released. These preoccupations inform the artists' methods and guide their compositions, resulting in work that describes their highly personal and deeply considered motivations.
