Brought on by a prevailing sense of existential calamity, I Don’t Feel At Home In This World addresses both a personal and cultural proclivity towards the end of time. The images depicted by Drew Griffith and Matthew Whiting are like hallucinogenic visions forecasting an impending cataclysm. Through a series of drawings, paintings, and sculptural objects, a linear narrative is constructed weaving these visions together. The fabricated worlds depicted in these works are grounded in reality through the inclusion of customary objects from our own world. The images are rife with the structures synonymous with humans – ships, airplanes, temples, graveyards – but they are all empty. The resulting void is inviting, but speaks of an unseen ominous presence. Opening reception for this exhibition is November 5, 2010 from 7-11pm and runs through November 28, 2010 at Johalla Projects 1561 N Milwaukee 2nd Floor.
