|Post: Recent artwork by Shawn Saumell
Through January 30, 2016
Presented at the White Rock Lake Museum, located inside the Bath House Cultural Center.
Shawn Saumell is a visual artist born in New York who currently lives and works in Dallas. When the artist was first asked to develop a new exhibition, he considered the mission of the White Rock Lake Museum of bringing the preservation of the environment to the forefront of public discussion. The artist’s new show,Post, is an important project that echoes some of the ideas and concepts of ecological conservation that are regularly presented in the museum.
Post features a series of prints mounted on aluminum panels that depict colorful, yet desolated and otherworldly desertscapes. Within some of the artist’s imagined environments, he includes abandoned metal buildings and other structures that might represent societies or cultures perhaps long-gone. These landscapes could symbolize Earth or other planets whose civilizations may have made similar self-destructive choices to their environment. The title of the exhibition refers to the co-relation of Mr. Saumell’s invented spaces with views and thoughts about post-war, post-natural disaster, post-nuclear winter, post-apocalyptical world, post-Earth civilization, and other similar concepts.
