WHEN + WHERE?
Oct 20, 2023, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM
ClearStory Arts Gallery, 1673 S Holtzclaw Ave, Chattanooga, TN 37404, USA
Join us for the opening reception of Travis Knight's ALONE WITH EVERYBODY: A look into the secret worlds we build for ourselves, and a celebration of the quiet places from where we create, on October 20 from 6-8pm.
I spend a lot of time in my head. It's something we all do, creating secret worlds within our minds. These private places provide us with a necessary escape. Over time, they shape who we are. These imaginative realms are built upon our half-remembered experiences and emotions, distorted through the lens of nostalgia.
This body of work originates from this secret world. My inspiration comes from midcentury advertisements and old comics, which I then transform into iconic figures. These recurring characters symbolize memories, feelings of security, desires, and even fears.
The work will be on display in the ClearStory Arts Gallery from October 20 to October 28. Stop by during the opening reception, or on Fridays or Saturdays from 2-6pm.
