"Ultrasonic International II: Transcending Transience"

ULTRASONIC INTERNATIONAL II: Transcending Transience is presented from July 14 to August 25, 2007 at the Mark Moore Gallery in Santa Monica, CA.
From the mundane to mortality, artists address transience as a way of coming to terms with change. The exhibition includes work by Michael Brunswick (Canada), Susan Collis (UK), Graham Dolphin (UK), Richard Gilles (US), Julie Heffernan (US), Dimitri Kozyrev (Russia), Zane Lewis (US), Srdjan Loncar (Croatia), Rachel Perry Welty (US), Chad Person (US), Jonathan Seliger (US), Jackie Tileston (US).This year for its second installment, Ultrasonic International is providing a forum in which to engage with and consider the almost paradoxical notion that one of life's few consistencies is its very transience.
The show will bring together twelve artists whose work, although stylistically and thematically very different, is inextricably linked with notions of transience, temporality, and impermanence. The show will propose a dialogue amongst the works regarding this theme, and yet aims to allow each work to be considered as a single piece with its own independent agenda.
In participating in this dialogue and considering such ideas relating to transience, we must eventually address and confront our own impermanence. Death and mortality have been a perennial facet of art; thus the show will remain a relevant continuation of established themes and will provide a means to consider how such themes manifest themselves, consciously or unconsciously, within contemporary art.
