A GUIDE TO SALVATION – Curated by Hilary Pecis

Andrew Schoultz, David Kazprazak, Hilary Pecis, Jana Flynn, Kelly Lynn Jones,
Marcie Oakes, Michelle Blade, Ryan Travis Christian, Tracy Timmins.
Opening Reception: Friday, July 9th, 7 – 10pm
July 9th – 30th, 2010
SPACE 1026
1026 Arch St. 2nd Floor
Philadelphia, PA 19107

The tradition of western painting has historically focused on the Divine in a variety of ways; depicting icons, revelations, mysteries and ecstasies, all pointing to the path to salvation. A Guide to Salvation examines the approach contemporary artists take to suggest the Divine or to illustrate a creed of his or her own. Dave Hickey recently wrote in Art in America, the “Edenic dreamers are transparent, exposing their dreams undisguised and, standing in the light, are completely naked”. The artists in this exhibition put forth work bearing both the governing suggestions of the celebration and devotion to what they hold sacred. They offer to decode the world, provide guidance and attempt to grant salvation to the devoted. Their work suggests the working of miracles, the worship contemporary icons, hyper intense scenes of ecstasies, end of life experiences, cautionary warnings, and most importantly a simple pathway to a spiritual experience. The artists, whose work is not intrinsically religious, participate in the ritual of paying homage to their motivational source and driving force, as well as offering deliverance to the chosen. Please join us for an opening reception for A Guide to Salvation on Friday, July 9th from 7:00 t0 10:00pm at 1026 Arch St. in Philadelphia.

A native Californian, curator Hilary Pecis resides and works in San Francisco, where she is a recent MFA graduate from California College of the Arts. Pecis’ work is a depiction of landscapes influenced by Internet, television and other media sources.  Images and shards from glossy magazine pages are reassembled into a surrogate image within the new composition in combination with code imbedded drawings of rock formations.  With an interest and focus on the interchangeability of images and the capability to perceive and ignore them, Hilary, draws attention to how we are conditioned by the media’s overwhelming supply of information. She has been the recent recipient of San Francisco Weekly’s Mastermind Grant and San Francisco Arts Commission’s Murphy and Cadogan Fellowship.
