The Mechanisms of Memory
The Delmar Riney Art Gallery at Pratt Community College is hosting an art exhibit of Monika Meler and Derrick Stanley. The Mechanisms of Memory will be open Tuesday, September 15 and will run through Friday, October 9. The Delmer Riney Art Gallery is open to the public from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The exhibit features works on paper by the two artists, Meler and Stanley, who have worked side by side for over seven years. Both artists currently live in Wichita, but most of the work in the exhibit was made when they lived in Rome, Italy. The work is an exploration of Meler’s past, from her childhood in Poland and immigration to America through a variety of print media and Stanley’s experiments in programming robots to draw. Both artists’ work is abstract and explores mark making and the layering of images. The layers mimic the way memory is formed and the non-representational nature of the work comments on the inability to retain memory in any accurate way.
