On September 4th from 7pm-12am, come to BASIC in San Diego for the exhibition of "Alternate Endings!" This exhibit presents a group of artists who characterize the myriad of ways to depict visual narratives.
The narrator determines the ending of a story. Just like there are endless narrators and writers, there are limitless endings to countless tales. These multiple points of view are recorded and translated to the reader in the form of written word. The artist records tales and endings in a different way: through imagery.
San Diego local, Alex Avila, is a self-taught artist who strives to present the public with an honest, and different, view of San Diego. His inspiration comes from what he sees while roaming the city via public transportation. His depictions of the darker sides of humanity are juxtaposed with striking colors, bringing light and a deep graphic quality to his works.
Michelle Ferrera uses the process of her artistic creation as an outlet for her emotions as well as a kind of personal therapy. Carefully planning and sanding her wooden panels, Ferrera creates arresting images in graphite, incorporating the grain of the wood into the design. Her life experiences and emotions are heavily integrated into her portraits.
Video games create an interactive story that one can easily be lost in. Mr. Benja is obsessed with video games. He sees the world through this lense. His work is a progressive and graphic expression of his love of games.
Other artists exhibiting at the show are Aaron Moore, Joseph Tejeda, Alex Minch, Jonathan McClintic, Cody Young, Victor Villa, and Barkdog. Live artists will create right before your eyes by artists True Delorenzo, Sharif I. Carter, David Goff, and Annamarie Flores, while local DJ, DrDiggs performs.
