Katie Stout featured in “Drawing Room”
August 12 - September 15, 2018
Over the Influence Gallery, Hong Kong/ Los Angeles
“Drawing Room” presents a series of works by contemporary painters representing interior living spaces, which historically were produced as documentation of personal living spaces of the wealthy. Domestic interiors only became a subject worthy of a painter’s full attention in the modern era. The production of domestic interior painting was driven by a new art market that included middle class patronage. As a new subject, the domestic interior offered painters novel and interesting ways to comment on society, religion, politics, etc. Today, painters capturing the interior living space similarly reflect contemporary society by capturing objects and displays of the current era.
