An exhibition of drawings from San Antonio artist and educator Ashley Mireles that explores curiosity. A series of portraits of people in the act of looking at art – the drawings focus on the subjects’ inspection, captivation, loss of awareness, and so on. As viewers take the time to look, Mireles hopes they may experience the same sense of captivation. That feeling of when you look at art and forget about time, just for those few seconds or minute? We do this in self-reflection too, get lost in ideas and the meaning of a piece. Sometimes when we look at art, we don’t just lose track of something because we’re investigating or wondering, but we also for a moment become un-embodied, blissfully unaware of our bodies in movement.
