InLiquid presents the work of artist members Tom Herbert and Ken Karlic. While their approach and use of medium are rather different, both artists utilize distortion techniques to disrupt images of familiar subject matter.
In this exhibition, the figurative work of Tom Herbert is highlighted, showcasing his eye-catching mixed media works, that blend collage, painting and assemblage to create images of the human figure through an altered lens. Ken Karlic, on the other hand, uses watercolor to create distorted landscapes that dissolve into varying levels of abstraction. The series featured in this exhibition follows the theme of “City Lights” and is focused around a large-scale work capturing an evening cityscape, with smaller works to complement that display familiar views from behind automobiles on the road.
