The State of Not Knowing – works on paper by Ernesto Hidalgo and Deanna Gisborne
My Body by Deana Gisborne (2019), 43′ x 39.5′, Graphite on Paper
The State of Not Knowing is an exhibition works on paper by Ernesto Hidalgo (print media) and Deanna Gisborne (painting & drawing).
Artist statement: Ultimately, a search for our complicated identities is at the heart of our work, whether this is manifested by obscuring the body, multiplying form, collapsing into a writhing vortex or creating dream-like worlds where animals and humans intersect. We try to reconcile contradictions in ourselves, made possible through the unbounded language of art. All of this probing of the self-conscious mind is expressed in bodies, trying from all angles to reach that same conclusion and achieve resolution: Who am I, and how can I grasp this ever-evolving self? This question is, of course, unanswerable, but we continue this cycle indefinitely, because we are human, and we are curious.
