Influence is a strange beast. An artist’s practice, I believe, would wither without an influx of ideas. Many artists that I work with or have researched go through periods of intense consumption of the outside world, then enclose themselves in the studio as a retreat to filter and digest what is essential. Others maintain a regular back and forth of information- the similarity of the methods is that they are both a dialog. And in this conversation, with others or themselves, echoes and nuances of those influences creep into the artist, and into the work.
Echoes features a diverse group of artists, whose works clearly embrace and ripen from influences. Their studio work progresses, each into a distinct and compelling voice.
