Romantic, emotional, at times surreal and always eccentric, in Semiotics, works by four artists infuse the galleries at La Luz de Jesus with the elements of a parallel language. Dianne Bennett, Meagan Boyd, Carlín Díaz and Nathan Reidt each creates their own take on a more dreamlike way of interpreting the world and their experiences of it, following the rules of their own allegories. From pop-inflected stylized scenic compositions to zesty, detail rich mixed media tableaux, finely rendered but impossible anatomies, and folkloric, feverish fables, this show strikes a fanciful, thoughtful tone of visual poetry.
