Robert Jackson Harrington & Hector Hernandez

  • opening reception: friday, december 4, 7-10pm
  • exhibition dates: december 4 - january 10, 2015

Hector Hernandez creates worlds of fantasy with his photographs. These images of strange fancies populated by lone figures allow viewers to escape to a fantasy world we wish existed.

Robert Jackson Harrington creates his sculptures with familiar materials that toy with possibilities for imagined outcomes. His arrangements create a sense of becoming something greater. It is a potential world we wish could be fulfilled.

Along with new work created individually, Hernandez and Harrington produced collaborative art works for this exhibition. What happens when what we wish existed crosses with a world that has the potential to be greater? That’s Impossible to Tell.
