The ‘Lost Moments: Scott Listfield & Friend’s exhibition opens at Gauntlet Gallery in San Francisco this Saturday 28 June and runs through till 26 July.
Scott Listfield & Gauntlet Gallery have collected a group of artists that explore the dysphoria between our imagined future from childhood and the reality of the modern day world we live in. “It’s getting harder to remember whether the latest fad actually happened, or was just a memory from a movie we watched when we were six. Can I get a personal pizza delivered by drone? Will something I’m wearing alert me when my nephew is born? Technology is amazing, but with answers to every question we could ever ask in our pockets, it’s getting harder to find an experience that feels unscripted. Like getting lost, alone, in a city you’ve never visited before. Scott Listfield & Friends explore these ‘Lost Moments’ depicting strange yet familiar places. The scenes in their paintings might take place in the distant past or in a somewhat hazy but recognizable future, filled with an odd cast of characters and settings – astronauts, robots, icebergs, lava floes, explosions, and dinosaurs.”
