'The Truth Is Not the Truth'
or What You Think You See May Not Be What You’re Seeing
Curated by Beth Caspar

A pop-up show in a new gallery space called The Porch, in Halcottsville, NY. 2018

“My initial reaction to the Rudy Giuliani statement “truth isn’t truth” was one of disbelief that anyone could make such a ridiculous proclamation. But the more I thought about it the more it interested me as a concept for a show, the general idea of which would be ambiguity.”

My work along with eleven other local artists, including: painters Laura Sue King, Patrice Lorenz, Miguel Martinez-Riddle, Amy Masters, and Nat Thomas; mathematician and videographer Roman Kossak; photographer Elaine Mayes; installation artist, videographer, and photographer Alan Powell; conceptual artist and videographer Wanda Siedlecka; architect and printmaker Ted Sheridan; and animation videographer and painter Tona Wilson comprised the show. This group was willing to tackle not only the artistic challenge but also the quick-and-dirty nature of the pop-up format, in which a show may literally be here today and gone tomorrow.
