The Projective Eye Gallery, located in UNC Charlotte Center City, will present "Murmurs on the Other Side of Light," surreal paintings of the life of the shadow by Guyanese artist Stanley Greaves from Friday, Nov. 22, through Friday, Jan. 3.
A celebrated Caribbean artist, Greaves is known for a lifetime of creating surrealistic narrative accounts of Guyana’s politically tumultuous period during the 1960s, 70s and 80s. More recently, his psychosocially charged paintings have depicted shadow forms. In this series, the shadow has its own life, forever elusive and symbolic of the “collective unconscious.” These dark figures move with celebration, triumph and the playfulness of a child, presented from the wise and long-lived perspective of a Caribbean surrealist in his 70s.
The Projective Eye Gallery, part of the UNC Charlotte College of Arts + Architecture, is open seven days a week, from 9:00 AM - 9:00 PM.
