Communicating Vessels: Ed Bisese, Elyse Harrison, Wayne Paige
Curated by Claudia Rousseau, PhD
January 25-March 15, 2020
Presented by the Alper Initiative for Washington Art

The phenomenon of “communicating vessels” in science appealed to Surrealist poet André Breton (1896-1966) as a metaphor of the process of balancing artistic inspiration from the interior life of the mind and the perception of reality outside of ourselves. The three artists in this exhibit all work from this premise, although each with a different conceptual and stylistic approach. Their paintings and drawings reflect a widespread prevalence of surrealist imagery in contemporary art.
