WASHINGTON, DC – The Alternate Present, by Baltimore-based artist Lisa Dillin, riffs on the contemporary office environment to consider both artificial interior and natural exterior environments. Flashpoint Gallery will showcase Dillin’s first solo exhibition in Washington, DC with her recent sculptures and photo-based imagery. The artist incorporates images from the natural world and manmade materials such as laminated MDF (medium density fiberboard), neon lighting and vertical blinds with wood grain texture. The works investigate the contrast between primitive and contemporary culture and the tension between the built environment and the natural world.
