Online Exhibition // "Question Mark," organized by Betsy Odom
About the exhibition
This exhibition considers the feeling of waiting for the other shoe to drop. Works teeter on the edge between anticipation and dread, interrogation and ambiguity. Whether through somatic text or reductive mark making, the gestures in these pieces exist almost as questions, making you wonder what’s coming next.
