Dissonance

a solo exhibition of works by Bill Brookover in Gallery 2
September 8th - 29th

Dissonance is the result of conflict, whether in music, in art, or in life. We seek harmony, so we seek to reconcile conflicts and differences. This process is part of personal growth, of learning, and of opening ourselves to empathy and compassion.

This body of work explores visual metaphors for dissonance and harmony. Opposing systems and visual languages are placed in relation to one another. The work explores geometric patterning in relation to flowing organic forms. This sets up oppositions of straight lines against curves, of ordered grids against flowing lines, and of geometric shapes against organic forms. I seek harmony through the resolution of dissonance.
