A new installation at The Smallest Gallery in Soho by San Francisco based artist Strider Patton. The title of the work is ‘(K)now’ showing a room divided. One side sterile white, the other side, a blast of colour, shapes, patterns and energy. Alongside this ribbons come from the top of the building to interact through the space. Drawing your eye from top to bottom and up again. The aim of this installation is to gently remind us that barriers are perceived, that we are all human, that we must share our only home, and that an open chair and vulnerable conversation may be our salvation. We are all worthy of belonging and understanding. Patton’s purpose is to give the observer a moment of pause to contemplate that “the other” is not so different from themselves. In doing so he hopes to remind us that all we have is our shared humanity.
