Event Description:

It’s Becoming Familiar

Drew Austin

It’s Becoming Familiartakes place within an abstracted home; various objects, potentially personal, potentially gifted, hang on the wall and artist-created furniture is placed throughout the space. Certain objects command attention while other objects do well to fade into the background, only to be noticed upon closer inspection. Throughout the day, the natural light changes the way the space is activated. Lived-in spaces and used objects hold history, and paired next to artist-created objects, tell a crafted story of a life condensed.

The materials each specifically reference something from the artist’s home, integrating elements from his childhood house as well as his current home. These materials speak to home renovation, being a first time homeowner in a growing city, experiencing textured walls for the first time, watching light cast through windows, wandering alleys, and observing leaves collecting and creating patterns on the drive leading to the front door.

On the exterior walls of the gallery, the viewer is asked to observe two distinct places. On one wall we find a kind of showcase of objects from near and far; objects from the past and from the present and from the future, all of a similar size collected like rocks from childhood and presented as such.

The opposite wall gives the viewer an opportunity to explore the stars and create their own destiny with Pocket Constellations.
