Art Gallery

Julie Comnick, Fuoco, oil on canvas, 80" x 95"

Arrangement for a Silent Orchestra

February 4 - February 28, 2019

Arrangement for a Silent Orchestra is a painting and video project that explores the gradual dissolution of culture in contemporary society through the symbolic ruin of a personal and cultural icon, the violin. Using the violin as a metaphor, artist Julie Comnick raises questions about the relationship between advancing technology and diminishing cultural heritage, inviting the audience to consider what makes the instrument precious in their own experience, and the impact of its loss.
