13FOREST Gallery is pleased to present Emerge, an exhibition featuring work by contemporary artists Dena Bach, Christopher Frost, Raúl Gonzalez III, Nancy Popper, Michael Seif and Mark J. Stock. Emerge seeks to explore the changing identities, thoughts and forms that take shape in an unpredictable world.
Through various media, Emerge presents the work of six artists and their unique interpretations on the theme of transformation—be it mythical, cultural, intellectual or physical. Inspired by the Japanese legend of "kitsune," foxes of exceptional intelligence that could shape-shift into human forms, Emerge is a meditation on metamorphoses in settings both commonplace and supernatural.
While Emerge considers dualities such as environmental versus human manipulation of materials, it also investigates more nuanced spectra of private and public personas, and form and formlessness. This exhibition is dedicated to unity with an eye toward truths that remain hidden and others that emerge.
Opening reception May 21, 4-6pm
