WE SEE YOU, WE'RE LISTENING

RY BELOIN: WE SEE YOU, WE'RE LISTENING

DECEMBER 8, 2017 

While in residence at 1805 Gallery, Ry Beloin has been engaging the community through clay portraiture. We See You, We’re Listening is an exhibition that focuses on relationships mediated by art and art practices. As Beloin delicately molds and carves the distinct features of her subjects, the artist and subject become intertwined through shared stories and experiences. 

“In contemporary culture there’s a great deal of emphasis on self-discovery and personal journey, and I want to try an opposite tack—listening to other people. A good portrait acknowledges that someone else’s reality exists, which you could also say is what empathy is.” - Ry Beloin

Melissa Walter: San Diego CityBeat

1805 Gallery is proud to announce that resident artist Melissa Walter is featured in San Diego CityBeat as "one of the most fascinating and prolific artists currently working in the local art scene."  

"What is that?” asked a passerby, stopping mid-stride to look inside the window of the 1805 Gallery in Little Italy.

It was a rather apropos question considering what she was looking at:  a series of encompassing thread sculptures that protrude from the wall and prismatically extend out over the small gallery space. An early evening during the solstice was the perfect time to see it. The rays of the setting sun blocked by surrounding buildings, the dwindling light of day completed and complimented the rays of artistic energy that were being blasted out of the walls and onto any person that happened to be walking by....."

Our ability to solve complex issues has been hindered by our level of education. Content injection is a negated obloquy. Art gives the viewer equal stake in the topic at hand, and instead of allowing for free communication (whether it be positive or negative by nature), art has a habit of hindering the voices of objection. In order for art to evolve, ALL lines of communication need to be kept open, and not just ones that are acceptable only to the most “open-minded” Globalist. Censorship in it’s simplest form, is ignorance.
