It’s not often that an artist gets the chance to elaborate on a work that they have completed years before. Transformer’s exhibition opening this weekend gives artists just that chance. “Expansions,” a group show featuring DC and nationally based emerging artists, opens this Friday, March, 15, at 6 pm and runs through April 20.
Eames Armstrong, Benjamin Edmiston, Matt Hollis, Victor Koroma, and Megan Mueller will be showing works that expand upon their past 2-D works in Transformer’s “FlatFile” series.
The “FlatFile” series consists of works in 2-D of various mediums including painting, photography, drawing and printmaking at 16″ x 20″ in size or smaller. The five artists in “Expansions” will use the space within the small P Street gallery to expand on, and elaborate the ideas found in their “FlatFile” works to make larger, sculptural, mixed-media installations, video animation, and paintings.
The exhibition will also include an artist talk from DC’s own Eames Armstrong on the boundaries of the body and our conception of self, particularly in the context of technology and social media on Saturday April 6 at noon.
While “FlatFile” works have been sold across the country at fairs such as ArtDC, No Soul For Sale, and (e)merge, since 2007, Tranformer will launch online sales of the works in the collection. Transformer will start the sale of the FlatFile collection with the work of the five artists featured in “Expansions.”
