Intrinsic Ideation: Evoking Cellular Memory

Artwork by Carises Horn and Alexis Meyer

The Studio@620 presents "Intrinsic Ideation: Evoking Cellular Memory", a one-day exhibition of artwork by Carises Horn and Alexis Meyer. Shown will be watercolor, ink and acrylic works by Horn as well as digital photography by Meyer.

Carises Horn’s exhibition is an introspective exploration of Western 21st Century art. The showing questions the act of viewing modern art and inspects our subconscious mythologies in an attempt to awaken the viewer’s cellular memories.

This is Carises Horn’s first showing in St. Petersburg in over a year and features seven new works by the artist that “interpret the act of viewing.”   

The exhibition also features photographer Alexis Meyer. Her photographs, taken from around the world, narrate the interconnection between humans and the natural world. In this exhibit, Alexis cautiously choreographs anthropocentrism and ecocentrism.

Both Carises Horn and Alexis Meyer’s exhibition aspires to evoke the sense of one’s own past and to give rise to a greater sense of seeing the world.

 

About Carises Horn

"I started panting to show that great art comes from a deep pool of experience. I believe that in art the spiritual and the physical come together in an act of divinity, to celebrate the experience of racial memories within the sacredness of the subconscious. In sleep, I see the traditional, physical realities of an image transcend into the greater divinity of the universe; thus, its true appearance. These images manifest from a place where the great and equal parts that makes up the whole still exist, calling, crying out, giving me my purpose. I have faith in a painting’s power to ignite a fire where there is no smoke. Art should lift the vale of this feigned reality and from what is dark make light, unforeseen by perception. Now, with my existence dedicated to this ceremony of creation, I feel as an arrow loomed within the great bow of life, ready to be shot forth into the Mystery straight and fair, and when I land, only then, I will know my purpose has ended…" --Carises Horn

About Alexis Meyer

"Photography is a tool for me to create a visual record that stands as a testimony for conservation and meaningful modifications in our epistemology. It is a means to show the sequential relations within the notions of man and nature, object and subject, and affords me a perception between the ideas of vision, thought, and sensation. Photography is where the worlds of human and machine, imagination and instrument, art and agency come together to collectively compose a shift in everyday consciousness. It is my hope that my photographs can instill in people the same emotions I feel when taking them – whether the portrait of an endangered species or a relic of our shared history, I hope that the images I put forward can be the seed for that shift in consciousness. "

Samples of Alexis' work can be found on her Bindi Photography website. "The name Bindi comes from my dog, whose name means “point of origin” in Sanskrit. I hope some of these images can be a point of origin toward conservation thinking and action. I also have a photo blog at Alexis Meyer Photography detailing my adventures in conservation work and photography." -- Alexis Meyer
