Solomon Projects is pleased to announce Does This Sound Like
You?, an exhibition of new photographs by Atlanta-based artist,
Sarah Hobbs. The show will premiere a series of seven, large-format
color photographs. This is the artist's second solo exhibition
at Solomon Projects following her successful 2003 exhibition,
Small Problems in Living. The exhibition will be on view from
June 2 to July 30, 2006. An opening reception with the artist
will be held on Friday, June 2 from 6-8 PM.
Does This Sound Like You? continues the artist's interest in
psychological-based work, this time exploring the human tendency
to categorize ourselves and others based on dominant personality
traits. The title of the exhibition was inspired by the recent
proliferation of self-help books and websites that claim to
assist the untrained person in self-diagnosis. While the implications
of such could be precarious, Hobbs approaches her subject matter
with wit and familiarity. In the end, Does This Sound Like You?
points the finger back at the viewer, asking the question of
ourselves. Hobbs's work exposes both our perceptions of others,
and self-perception, through evaluations of others.
Sarah Hobbs grew up in Columbus, GA and holds a BA in Art History
and a MFA in Photography from the University of Georgia, Athens,
GA. Her work is included in the permanent collections of the
Art Institute of Chicago, the Brooklyn Museum of Art, the Los
Angeles County Museum of Art, the Museum of Fine Arts in Houston
and the Sir Elton John Collection, among others. Hobbs's work
was featured in a 2004 solo exhibition at the Knoxville Museum
of Art and reviewed by Art in America. The artist lives and
works in Atlanta, GA.
