Cascade Gallery brings forward, artist Brian Gillis’s installation exhibition, …on Wednesday. Gillis as a storyteller asks a lot of questions both of his audience and himself. Gillis’s work is socially relevant, audience activated, and engaged. His installation of juxtaposed images, objects, and even spaces call to summon stories that elicit rich metaphors and social exchanges in an effort to arouse awareness, introspection and valuation. Gillis is generous in his approach, acknowledging the bond that a story, storyteller and audience have mortally or symbiotically. Gillis is examining this bond through varied methods of communication: allusion, implication, and experience all in serve of the narrative.
