It should come as no surprise that artists like to question things. There is a defining characteristic inherent to an artist’s questions. Unlike everyday queries, the artist often eludes the question/answer binaries. Without trying to position art as analogous to philosophy, Proof groups together the work of seven student artists who explore various human means of qualifying and quantifying existence.
The possibility for consensus doesn’t come easily- unless, of course, you turn to the empirical faculties of this world such as science, of which Justin Bochek is so keen to interrogate. Through endless Xerox and collage Bochek echoes the impossibility of quantifying the mysticism of our biology. Both Steven Kurtz and Janie Cheng tackle a similar trajectory: Kurtz through the healing, new age symbolism implicit to his totems; Cheng through a comical reflection on the religiosity with which she heeded her mother’s words.
However, Proof isn’t only preoccupied with science and mysticism. Lindsay Holton’s clean steel surface reveals a conflict of desires with the muted texture of the word “ambivalent”. Conflict is alluded to again by Palmer Jarvis’s frustrated object. Our expectations of function go unfulfilled but at the same time are curiously expanded: we are able to confuse a drawer for a lock, rations for survival. Undoubtedly, these works raise the stakes of Josh Crawford’s Grid in 139 in which the artist quite literally takes control of the flow of light and examines the use of increments with the aid of sleek, minimalist acrylic surfaces.
The artists in Proof  also seem to share an affinity for the way things are constructed (or deconstructed). Lindsay Sorell’s Supportive & Friendly, a haphazard but sturdy construction of studio scraps, points towards angular, utopian architecture while Daniela’s Warehouse speaks to the exact opposite: shattered, abandoned, and consequently, dystopian. Alex Bowron’s Untitled Contemporary Art also shares a fascination with structures –physical and theoretical. Her words are brilliant and confused; you hear everything and understand nothing. Kathleen Renwick works with materials that are close at hand to create layered installations filled with images of stale icons. She bravely refutes idolatry in the media and the white walled gallery.
Fortunately for us, Proof doesn’t demand anything onerous. These artists are savvy in their ability to quote and deconstruct the ways in which we organize our world. Yet their generous mapping is only in response to the requisites of the viewer.
