We are pleased to announce this summer's debut of the ATHICA Emerges program,
for which artists Tyrus Lytton and Anthony Wislar were chosen from
among a dozen entries. The ATHICA Emerges program was created for the
sole purpose of offering local emerging artists opportunities to
exhibit their work here. This is also the debut exhibition at ATHICA of
co-curators Rebecca Brantley and Brigette Thomas, Art History graduate
students at the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia
(UGA) and ATHICA Board members.
Wislar and Lytton share a similar aesthetic, combining abstraction with
figuration in works whose characters occupy an alternate, fantastical
world. While Wislar's solitary or sparsely grouped figures exist on
clean expanses of white or raw canvas, Lytton's figures—some human,
some hybrid creatures—are usually composed directly on the raw wood of
found objects such as discarded bureau drawers, with only a trace of
landscape or decorative motif to accompany them.
