The work of Rhea Cutillo.
Rhea’s work is currently at Hatch Gallery in Oakland, CA.
[Lack of] Being is a dialogue of shattered truths that destroyed the self. After this destruction the previous self is non-existent, and in it’s place a state of non-being. It is a place where all one’s notions, groundings, pieces of the heart and mind are floating in a nothingness. Time ceases to exist. Creation has yet to begin. It is after the end but before the beginning. It is vulnerability but possibility. It is the existential human condition; existence without essence: a loss-of-self while still inhabiting a confined temporal existence.
Rhea Cutillo (b. Philadelphia, 1987) is a multimedia artist with an academic background in Philosophy and Fine Art (Mills College 2011). Interested in epistemic experience, both in the physical and immaterial realms, her work seeks truth in the universality of human existence. Inspired by the unknown and the idea of freedom, she creates immersive environments often meditative and slightly surreal. (rheacutillo.info)
The closing reception is January 25, 2014.
