In Strangely Familiar, artists Joseph Kameen, Mark Brosseau and Heather Deyling confront relationships to the world around them. Familiar yet sometimes indiscernible objects and scenery call into question the connection we have with the world around us. Mark Brosseau and Joseph Kameen’s paintings find figures and objects coming to terms with their surroundings; while, Heather Deyling’s fiber and mixed media installation of amalgamated flora and fauna defy identification and question the ways in which they emerged.
Heather Deyling is the Professor of Foundation Studies at SCAD Atlanta. Deyling earned an MFA in painting from Tyler School of Art, Temple University and a BFA from Kent State University. Recent exhibitions include a solo show at the Peninsula Museum of Art in Burlingame, CA and group exhibitions at the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles, San Jose, CA, the Hudgens Center for Art and Learning, Duluth, GA and the Wiregrass Museum of Art, Dothan, AL.
