CURRENT SHOW : 

ARIEL DANIELLE NORRIS LIFE IS GREEN
Outpost 186 is pleased to present LIFE IS GREEN, the second solo exhibition of Ariel Danielle Norris. Norris has worked within the canonical genre of photo realism in order to question the universalism of the photo-fiction. She pulls abstraction, montage, cartoons, and expressionistic styles back into the frame, while delicately sustaining a suspension of disbelief inherent to the photographic. Her paintings weave together autobiographical narratives and portraits with literary, pop culture and art historical themes.  Focusing on the “fini” of the painting surface, as and allegory for the camera flash, she blurs lines of illusionary and indexical representation and renders a personal poesis into the genres.



Ariel Danielle Norris (b. 1991, Georgia)  Grew up in the Southern Appalachia, then relocated to Boston for college. She graduated from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2014, and while enrolled there attended the Yale Norfolk Painting residency.  She now lives and works in Hudson, NY.
