In this exhibition, you will view exquisitely painted canvases that explore how architecture can reflect society both culturally and socially. The Edifice in Front of Us: Explorations in Architecture and Identity brings together two nationally recognized artists, Morgan Craig and Colin Doherty, who uses architecture as a metaphor. Philadelphia artist and Pollock Krasner Foundation grant recipient, Morgan Craig creates large-scale paintings that depict abandoned ruins of factories and dilapidated urban dwellings as repositories for societal memories. Formerly from Los Angeles and now residing in Lexington, artist Colin Doherty paints architectural landscapes that convey a deep sense of yearning within a vast open horizon. Both artists create melancholy works that question our identity as well as our collective obligation to the architecture that we produce for both current and future generations.
