The use of layers in images threads a connection between many traditions, from painting to map-making, to infographic timelines. Overlapping shapes and lines can also communicate different levels of data, contributing to a whole while maintaining individual identity. This group exhibition features artists who employ various forms of layering in their work, developing unique and distinctive outcomes and influencing a myriad of visual, emotional, and aesthetic responses.
