Barriers by Nathan Gulledge

Nathan Gulledge's Barriers will be on display at the Black Creek Arts Center. Gulledge has expressed his concept for the series through the following statement:

They are used to keep people at a distance.

They keep you from accepting the truth.
They prevent critical introspection.

Barriers disguise the emotion of the situation.
They prevent surpassing the problem.

Barriers are outer coatings that help you fit in.
They are inner coatings that blind your sense of reality.

They cause you to sacrifice individuality,
Allowing you to never see beyond the superficial.

Barriers block the strides for knowledge.
They overshadow the desire for understanding.

Barriers prevent questions.

This exhibit will be one of eight exhibits opening on February 4th at the Black Creek Arts Center. An opening reception will be held from 5:30 to 7:00pm on February 4th. The Black Creek Arts Center is located at 116 West College Avenue. For more information, call 843.332.6234.
