Christopher Blay explores the latest exhibition by Devon Nowlin, FAMILIAR STRANGERS, on display at Artspace111 from September 8, 2018 - October 6, 2018. The author writes, "With Strangers, though, Nowlin returns to a relationship between the photograph and painting. This fascination with found photographs, often connected to memory and a curiosity about untold stories and unfinished lives, again becomes the focus of her work in Strangers. Where Nowlin takes this fascination, however, is beyond a facsimile of a facsimile. Her deft talent for recreating images that are true to form notwithstanding, Nowlin also gives the viewer completely new visual spaces, and connect only insofar as the pictures are a starting point for her paintings."
