This exhibition reveals the artist’s reaction to war video games called “shooters.” She writes, “I change the game’s character and impede its ability to function as originally conceived. The paintings fix, flatten and abstract the video game’s imagery making it immobile. The paintings are about paint, surface variation and composition, denying the war video game’s original intention to appear three dimensional and immersive. My color is visual sugarcoating, not pretend reality, and my shapes only hint at their origin.”
Temme Barkin-Leeds has exhibited her work in numerous shows in Atlanta and Washington, DC.
A donation will be made to the Wounded Warrior Project in conjunction with this exhibition.
