THE INVISIBILITY COLLECTIVE:
SEEN X UNSEEN
12.06.2020 – 12.30.2020
Opening Day Sa 6 Dec by Appointment Only 12p – 6p.
The Invisibility Collective and invited guest artists are assembling an exhibition that is the culmination of months of virtual “Covid Conversations” from the West Coast to the East Coast of the USA.
We are looking at various ways that people express their feelings about being seen and not being seen and the intersection of the two worlds. We are exploring the many aspects of what it means to be invisible and presenting ways of becoming more aware of how this status affects us. Each of the collective’s members has asked questions about their experiences with invisibility. Our inner community is expanding to include a slightly larger outer community circle.
Together and individually we are exploring this intersection of being seen and unseen. The ideas that form the foundation of the collective preceded Covid, but have not surprisingly grown to encompass elements and results of the prolonged pandemic. How often and in how many ways do these words come up in your own conversation? As we’ve probed these ideas sparks have flown and intangible becomes more tangible. We are peeling away layers to look beneath the obvious – to reveal – and to reflect through an art experience that peaks the senses.
Questions are raised. Answers are discussed. It is experiential.

Lyko’s artwork uses mediums of acrylic, oil bar and spray paint in diverse mediums which awaken our sensibilities to experiences and strokes which stimulate our intense interest. Growing up in Southern California, Lyko was heavily influenced by his childhood in East Los Angeles where he saw and experienced street urban culture and spent many childhood days on his skateboard flying by street graffiti from Shepard Fairey, Mr Brainwash, Invader and Kid Zoom.
Some of the works on the virtual tour are still available to add to your collection. Please inquire if you’d like to know the status of a particular work.
