Curated by Mandy Cano Villalobos


Amidst social media bombardment and consumerist exchange, alienation overwhelms us and superficiality has become the norm. Pressed for time, we feel pressured to sacrifice those intangibles of existence that lack marketable value: intimacy, silence, and self-reflection. Yet a quiet protest has arisen. Introverted and OCD presents a collection of finely crafted works from artists who, mark by mark and incision by incision, grasp for a life of substance. Whether it’s the slow, constant crusade against the surge of impersonally digital hearts, likes, and emojis or the schizophrenic exertion to stay present in the moment, incessant repetition both distinguishes and unifies these artists’ processes.

Artists: Craig Dongoski, Marie N. Guex, Meg Hitchock, Lucha Rodriguez, Joseph Shetler, Alex Kvares, Kevin J. Lucey, Maureen Nollette, Tia Wierenga, Jayoung Yoon
