Tempus Projects Presents: YOU DRAIN ME

Tempus Projects presents YOU DRAIN ME, a new group exhibition featuring the artwork of Ryann Slauson, Jamie Steele, Maria Britton, Aliza Morell, Becky Flanders, April Childers, Wendy Babcox, Langdon Graves, and Leslie Vigeant.

January 21, 2017
Opening Reception (7PM – 9PM)
Tempus Projects, Tampa

Through a variety of media from artists based throughout the country, the exhibition sets its focus on melancholic themes often coupled with tenderness. The work highlighted in YOU DRAIN ME evoke a poignancy at times softened by unexpected humor. As the title suggests, the collection reflects a psychological continuum stretching across the taxing nature of complex emotional states and its the release of catharsis.

I AM THE DOOR THAT NO MAN CAN SHUT by Becky Flanders
I AM THE DOOR THAT NO MAN CAN SHUT by Becky Flanders

Artist Maria Britton, for example, pairs the immediacy of her improvisational painting with the especially intimate support of found patterned bed sheets. The comfort, emotional and physical, associated with such bedding is interrupted by knots plaited into the fabric, stains of acrylic paint blossoming like hazy memories and forceful brushwork motifs.

Ambivalent by Ryann Slauson

Similarly, the work of Langdon Graves presents domestic objects eerily emptied of their functionality, thereby foregrounding its deeply complex accretion of memories and emotional associations. Other artists such as Ryann Slauson and April Childers commandeer popular and familiar imagery, liberating such visuals of their overt significance in favor of an ambiguity that sparks unexpected associations, narratives and personal recollections.

Not Exactly by Langdon Graves

The artwork of YOU DRAIN ME circumvents a tinny sentimentality toward eliciting a genuine sense of pathos. It sets off from an unabashed contemporary context–an image saturated and hyperconnected landscape–and candidly investigates the activity of an inner panorama.

The event is sponsored in part by The Gobioff Foundation, The Arts Council of Hillsborough County, Stanton Storer Embrace the Arts Foundation, The Knox Family Foundation, and Mermaid Tavern. Please join us for an afterparty at the Mermaid Tavern directly following the reception at 9pm.

The purpose of this exhibition is to examine a diverse group of artist’s perceptions of romantic love. The work being presented is each of their instinctive reactions to this concept. Post Coital, the blissful finale to a passionate exchange, does not always manifest in the same way. Gender, generational differences, and previous life experience color the expectation and outcome of romantic interaction. The artists presented in this exhibition endeavor to shine a small light on a universal occurrence that makes life more exciting and often more perplexing.
