Stories We Tell Ourselves: Art Exhibition by Dominic Lippillo

Tuesday, February 18, 2020- March 12, 2020 Multiday event - 23 days

Salmon Library Gallery

Throughout the series, “Stories We Tell Ourselves”, memory, landscape, and vernacular images, coalesce in a series of constructed photographs. Dominic Lippillo draws influence from his experiences, american scene painting, literature, and cinema; He seeks out non-specific American landscapes to become settings that simultaneously feel familiar and unfamiliar. In doing so, Lippillo embellishes the images by adding atmospheric conditions and appropriated figures that are alien to the melancholic landscapes. In these re-contextualized photographic realities the landscapes and figures share a symbiotic relationship, which allows them to transcend time, space, and experience due to their juxtaposition. Lippillo invites the viewer to impose new meanings and create their own re-telling's of the stories intertwining the anonymous figures and unspecified locations.

Please join us for a closing reception and artist talk on Thursday, March 12th, from 4:30pm - 6:30pm.

Exhibit and reception free and open to the public.

Gallery is open during library hours.
