TWIN KITTENS is pleased to present PATRIARCHS | MATRIARCHS, Dale Inglett’s first solo show in Atlanta.  The show will consist of videos, paintings and prints- all of which are abstractions of photographs from the turn of the previous century.

Inglett shares, “This body of work stems from an investigation of photographs of my ancestors. Using these as source images for paintings, video and prints, I attempt to challenge the fixed quality that photos seem to attach to identity, and to get at something more ineffable than likenesses. The works present, instead, the ever-shifting nature of identity. We change with every breath. I’m replacing the “proof” presented in photos with a re-imagining, a fiction, the unknown.”
