Altered States (Part Three)
November 4, 2017 - December 31, 2017
Gallery Sonja Roesch is pleased to announce Altered States, part three of a series of connected exhibitions across Texas, featuring travel drawings by Hills Snyder. The exhibition will open November 4, 2017 with a reception from 5 - 7 PM and will run through December 31, 2017.
Altered States features drawings based on explorations to Oklahoma, Texas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, Utah, Nevada, California, New Mexico, and South Dakota. Snyder’s travels follow a line that “goes through towns selected by the virtue of their names—not because they are odd or funny, but because they are evocative—emotional states, hoped for ideals, downers and reckonings: Nowhere, Happy, Bonanza, Lost Springs, Recluse, Keystone, Opportunity, Diamondville, Eden, Eureka, Bummerville, Nothing, Truth or Consequences, Eldorado.”
Hills Snyder’s travels began in May 2016 as a meditation on subjectivity, autonomy, independence, and place. “I’ve visited corners of this country hoping to randomly run across found beauties, overlooked events, discarded things, back roads—anything happening outside the frame of relevance and other assumptions of importance. Along the way I met some characters, people you’d love to meet, but never will. People I’ll probably never see again.”
