Two Charleston transplants, Trever Webster and Liz Vaughan will exhibit works based around lost or broken communication based on emotional turmoil, heartbreak and short comings of social structures in their upcoming show: Catalogue of Undeliverables.
Here's more about the artists from the press release:
Catalogue of Undeliverables will exhibit works based around lost or broken communication based on emotional turmoil, heartbreak and short comings of social structures. Webster and Vaughan will combine their unique aesthetics in a collaborative project showcasing correspondence art in the form of postcards and experimental video. There will be also be multimedia collages, prints and paintings by both artists.
Trever Webster creates his mixed media work with a sense of immediacy and a flare for the experimental. His number and text laden patterns codify his personal tendency towards habitual repetition. Webster's work sparks a dialogue either internally or externally as seen in his recent focus on Rsorschach style monoprints. Viewers are challenged to decode his seemingly random outbursts as well as his intricate compositions. His current work focuses on misinterpretation of our day to day communications and the risks we take to advance in our misconstrued society. He is focusing strongly on his materials as well as his environment. Webster has a tale to tell, and whether it is fictitious or an elaborate metaphor is yet to be determined.
Webster is an alumni of the Redux Contemporary Art Center's studio renter program. He has participated in group shows around town in venues such as Eye Level Art and Kulture Klash. He is originally from Madison, Wisconsin and currently works at Artist and Craftsman Supply in downtown Charleston.
Liz Vaughan's creative work is based in the psychological connection between identity and landscape. Vaughan combines elements of historic photographic processes, letterpress and other illustrative elements to create experimental collages, video and installation. The combination of historic processes and contemporary subject matter creates a visual narrative that is both highly personal and a reference to a shared history with the viewer. Vaughan is a current studio renter at Redux, the co-director of Receiver Time Based Media Center and has shown at venues such as Redux and Outer Space. She is originally from Richmond, Virginia and also works with Trever at Artist and Craftsman Supply in downtown Charleston.
