Gil Scullion: “Look At Me, Look At You”

Thursday, February 9, 2023

Opening Reception: Thursday, February 9, 4:30-6:30pm.

Gil Scullion’s exhibition is part of a multi-part project dealing with a sense of existential paralysis in the face of what seem to be social, political and geophysical inevitabilities. This set of stenciled spray paintings contains single and repeated patterns of a suited male figure peering outward through handheld binoculars. The gallery installation of serialized surveillance images by an unknown observer is inherently unnerving and offers insights into authoritarian critique. Confronted with a multiplicity of images the viewer is out numbered and immediately put on the defensive. However, when viewing an individual rather than a multiple figure composition, the act of looking transforms into a more intimate mutual act. In this perspective the reciprocal gaze connects with more convergent cultural, philosophical, political, and psychological references and associative interpretations.
