    Gallery Fukai presents Present Imperfect, Future Tense, an exhibition by Catherine Lavelle (11), Sarah Stein (11) and Kelly Gough (10).

    The dialogue created by the three artists in Present Imperfect, Future Tense questions the choices we make. Attempting to mediate the uncertainties of a complex present, they allegorically reference environmental, social, and economic considerations. There are no answers here, but an unsettling openness—the unknown space ahead is where choice is leading us.

    With works created over the past two years, Jennifer Chernecki's (08) Good Old Boys examines the (female) artist's perception of the male ideal. An ideal that, as the series unfolds, evolves from a more sexual viewpoint to something closer to a fraternal sort of love. The paintings question the modern man as well as documenting the experiences that took the artist through her thought process in understanding Him. The idea of "ideal" begins to be understood as a source of inspiration. It is also, once understood, something to question.
