What sets the artists in The Way Out apart is the reinterpretation of traditional media into a contemporary context. Painting and drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography and film- all familiar instruments in the foundation of art making- have been introduced in a fresh milieu of concept and craft. Oil on canvas partnered with documentary video, works on paper that combine printmaking, drawing and painting, and site-specific installations of ceramic sculpture and photography. They are fused with both familiar and previously unexplored concepts that range from notions of gender, family and place to abstract narratives and sensory interaction.
