Made of Many: Multiplicity of Self will display the figurative-inspired paintings of Ivan Eyre alongside the works of Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline, Esther Warkov, and Sheila Butler.

Ivan Eyre’s figurative surrealist-inspired paintings often represent an alternate reality that confronts our expectations by juxtaposing incongruous elements, fragmenting faces, and distorting visual planes. Eyre plays with the human form by doubling, multiplying, covering, and distorting it. He constructs and dismantles representations of people in a way that challenges unidimensional understandings of self. In this exhibition, you will see artworks that depict distortions of the outwardly presenting singular self. Artists like Ivan Eyre, Krisjanis Kaktins-Gorsline, Esther Warkov, and Sheila Butler approach conceptions of personhood in unique and disparate ways, but all challenge notions of normalcy and the discernable self.
