Christian Meesey
Christian Meesey:
Show Don't Tell: The Dorsch Gallery: Wynwood Arts District, 151 NW 24th Street Miami, FL 33127.

Show Dont Tell reflects Christian Meesey's fixation on pictorial narrative in all its aspects with ink drawings on paper and video as the media. This series explores both montage and the juxtaposition of images through a cynical viewfinder. His drawings combine earnest and sarcastic imagery that evoke references such as Art Nouvou, animation, and Underground Comics(with respect to Scott McCloud's definition of Closure). Show Dont Tell is a personal mantra regarding a tendency in creativity toward lazyness- a personal reminder to 'Show' through imagery and sequence rather than Telling what could be lazily explained.

Opening Reception: Saturday, April 8, 2006, 7 - 10 PM
Closing Reception: Saturday, May 6, 2006, 7 - 10 PM
