EXHIBITION // Time Stretch by Elizabeth / Sidebotham

September 27, 2018 - November 2, 2018

Location: UCF Art Gallery

Erin Elizabeth is a conceptual artist and utilizes non-traditional materials such as cake

and sprinkles along with gold leaf in order to explore questions about banality,

celebration, and experiential value. Harry Sidebotham is first and foremost a painter. He

engages in the tradition of painting, investigating scientific theories such as parallel

dimension theory. They have two young children and a collaborative studio practice that

assumes the identity, Elizabeth / Sidebotham.

 

Elizabeth / Sidebotham embraces the paradox presented by the intersection of a

traditional domestic landscape and artistic productivity. The work reflects the sacrifices,

challenges, freedom, and joy of parenthood. Fragility interplays with strength. Reverence

replaces frivolity. The materials, forms, and modes of productions are infused with

memory and sentimentality and exist in a state of premature nostalgia. There is

profundity in the banal, but it is also spectacularly boring. Elizabeth / Sidebotham strives

to capture this contradiction.

 

Please join us for the Opening Reception on Thursday September 27th from 5-7pm.
