Micro Museum presents Archetype Juxtaposed, the first collaboration between William Alexander Kerr and Juliette Pelletier. Archetype Juxtaposed presents Kerr's bold, crisp, sumi ink gestures on vibrantly hued blues, reds and burnt orange grounds in conjunction with Pelletier's surreal neo-classical renderings on textured abstracted surfaces. Kerr and Pelletier present parallel visual explorations, through the application of symbol and motif, each artist creates their own ordering of perception. Archetype Juxtaposed is a fascinating look at the evolution of two individual visions creating a purposeful and graceful tension of polarities.
