Absurd Survival

  • Shockoe Artspace 12 North 19th Street Richmond, VA (map)

ABSURD SURVIVAL is a solo exhibition of recent and new paintings by Richmond-based painter Casey Criddle. Criddle’s works satirically appropriate various genres of film and pop cultural idioms outsourced from a range of contexts, which together synthesize into a rich visual anthropological soil. A willing viewer is zoomed into thematic post cataclysmic situations where grounds for identity and hope are keenly thrown into question. This timely exhibition raises questions surrounding the frailty of our present condition, playing on and examining the assumptions that a large majority of current Western culture avoids and distracts themselves away from considering.
