This is a short reflection on the exhibition, Don’t Go Into the Light by Frank James Meuschke running November 4-27, 2022 at Rosalux, 315 West 48th Street, Minneapolis, MN 55419.
The format of this reflection is a single sentence or question per image. This content is also available as a printed zine.
Walking into the gallery, I’m struck by a sense of an unknowable quality, emphasized through deeply saturated colors and the softening of edges.
Questions come to mind, such as, “Do I like the blurred boundaries more for accentuating the unknown or heightening beauty?”
I asked myself, “What do we not know?”
I also wondered, “What is it to view the world through the plastic we are addicted to?”
Disclosure: I know the artist from when I was directing the MFA program at MCAD, where he served as a mentor.
