Meg Aubrey and Alea Hurst

Veiled Realities

Meg Aubrey presents a selection of oil paintings that are primarily from her new Game series, which dissects themes such as loneliness, secrecy, and artificiality through her manicured yet unnerving suburban scenes.

Alea Hurst’s oil paintings and serigraphs explore the wearing of masks and hiding of one’s face, but spin the concept around by using such outward presentation to reveal deeper truths about her subjects and society overall.

Presented together, the two artists convey complementary but separate perspectives in artistic approaches to identity politics, presentation versus reality, and the consequences of exposing hidden truths.
