Synaesthesia

‘Synaesthesia’, an exhibition by Rebecca Reed and Cody Sowerby, August 2016.

Presenting paintings and collage together as a collaborative installation, the exhibition explores common concerns and interests in the work of both artists including process, artificiality, (un)reality and popular culture. Synaesthesia is a distortion in sensory perception, and used in this context Sowerby and Reed refer to the hypermediated culture which we inhabit, where the empty image is a complex web of contradiction and references, and meaning is constantly made and redefined, ever shifting.
