Opening Reception: Thursday, July 6th // 6-9pm
Eleven self-portraits taken at the moment of climax. Some real. Some fake. Honestly lives in the grey matter of not knowing. It questions the difference between reality and one’s perception of reality. Challenging the viewer to re-define their notion of realness, Honestly allows the viewers to construct their own narrative. Hopefully, it has a happy ending.
