Christian Meesey: Show Don't Tell

April 8th through May 6th, 2006Show Dont Tell, presented by Dorsch Gallery opened on April 8th, 2006. This exhibition reflects Christian Meesey’s fixation on pictorial narrative in all its aspects with ink drawings on paper and video as the media. This series explores both montage and the juxtaposition of images through a cynical viewfinder. His drawings combine earnest and sarcastic imagery that evoke references such as Art Nouvou, animation, and Underground Comics(with respect to Scott McCloud’s definition of Closure). Show Dont Tell is a personal mantra regarding a tendency in creativity toward lazyness- a personal reminder to ‘Show’ through imagery and sequence rather than Telling what could be lazily explained.
