Recoil: Solo Exhibition by Sarah Knobel

March 5 - April 14, 2018

Coming from a place of uncertainty, division, and flux, the photographs and video artworks in the exhibition explore the pauses and connective moments that take place within the motion of any mechanism. In this liminal state, the familiar becomes subtly unfamiliar or inexplicable, as I explore what is real versus imagined, artificial versus natural, and beautiful versus grotesque.

Experimenting with scale, time, detail, blur, reflection, color, and overlay is a large part of my current discourse. In a world of hyper-documentation, where facts can be distorted and truths easily misconstrued, I use photography to show how time creates variables that skew perception. Recoil offers playful enquiries into the mystery of the ordinary.
