Loakal Gallery’s next exhibition looks to be an interesting one. The Oakland space is hosting a solo exhibition by Terry Furry entitled Intimate Strangers. The subject matter of the exhibition contains voyeuristic portraits graphically rendered in oils. The paintings are framed as snapshots as if captured and exchanged on cell phones and are reminiscent of the aesthetic of the so called ‘selfie-culture’. The paintings are of their time, and the exhibition comes just on the back of the word selfie being added to the Oxford English dictionary last month. Along with twerking. Thanks for that Miley.
The exhibition will contain seven 4×4 foot paintings, all oil on canvas. A definite to add to the Oakland First Friday art murmur checklist when it opens on Friday October 4th.
