Our conception for the exhibition originated through an exploratory process of, first, learning about Baltimore itself and the unique art scene it is home to. Through in-studio conversations with artists and curators living and working in Baltimore, as well as discussions amongst each other, we began to form an understanding of the concerns present in the work, where each of our interests lay, and the places those two strains overlapped. Implicit Dimensions is comprised of work by artists who are working in diverse practices that span a host of mediums. Cindy Cheng’s spatial drawings, along side her tightly knit, but inwardly expansive sculpture, Blind Side, exemplify this tendency toward a cross-pollination of forms. Shared threads connecting the work make reference to, and investigate context as subject matter, relationships to archive, play with illusory space, and a bodily empathy toward these complex environments. Many individual works function as collections of entities, rather than remote objects—viewers encounter arrangements that feel more modular than stationary. Nicole Dryer’s portrait-landscape-still lifes illustrate bodily relations that are unquestionably rooted in our present, digitally-informed realities. A sense of active and interconnected community materializes within the works, such as in the portraiture of Jerrell Gibbs, whose painted songs of praise document important community members, and demonstrate the authentic generosity and warmth that is present in Baltimore.
