Gloria Stern’s solo exhibition The Viewer explores the exchange between viewer and artwork, questioning what goes on in the imagined space between the viewer and the viewed. Stern suggests that the artwork expresses its own personality and often speaks back to us. In this new series Stern shifts the lens, diverging from a narrative representation of life to a more personal vision. She exposes the contingencies that escape our habits of seeing, orchestrating paintings that seemlessly shift from the real to the imagined. The Viewer refers to a new consideration of art, treating the artwork as a launching point for an experience, not a final contact.
