From their site...
Transparent Reflect examines the portrait and the self-portrait and its overlap in art. The show takes the traditional approach of making a portrait (from an observational standpoint) and mixes it with the more reflective side of a self-portrait. The artists in the show use photography, drawing, painting and installation works to portray their ideas though a range of formal and abstract approaches. They explore religion, sexuality, popular culture and the economic times that we are currently struggling through, and take a more autobiographical response to the current state of the nation. Transparent Reflect questions the notion of identity and brings forth reflection that is required and lately ignored in today’s society.
