Scott Silvey: deep time inhabitants
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 2, 7–10pm
Exhibition dates: November 2–25, 2017
Viewing hours: Fridays and Saturdays, 11am–5pm, or by appointment.
Day & Night Projects is pleased to present deep time inhabitants, an exhibition by Atlanta artist Scott Silvey. In his latest solo exhibition, deep time inhabitants, Scott Silvey references those experiences which reveal the fundamental and collective nature of humanity. According to the psychologist Carl Jung, “from the unconscious there emanates determining influences which, independently of tradition, guarantee in every single individual a similarity and even a sameness of experience....” Through painting, objects, and installation, Silvey creates an atmosphere which works to pull aside the veil of culture and subjective perception to reveal an underlying psychological/spiritual foundation. Concepts of offering, sacrifice, the accumulation of knowledge, health, and the perception of reality are all woven into a potent and thought-provoking tableau.
deep time inhabitants will be on view at Day & Night Projects from November 2–25, 2017. Gallery hours are 11am–5pm Fridays and Saturdays, or by appointment (special hours may be announced for Thanksgiving week—stay tuned to our instagram: @daynightprojects).
