Details: “Building Fictions” brings together the works of John Player, Adela Leibowitz and Michael Antkowiak. Each artist approaches painting as a process to reconfigure pre-existing cultural narratives. Referencing disparate source imagery, including documentary and surveillance photography, representations of mythological gods, or webcam video stills, these artists reposition the original subjects into new spaces, and in the process conflate fact with fiction.
