USF’s Centre Gallery is excited to bring you Asylum by USF Alumnus, Jake Northrup and Slawek Kozub. In this collaborative painting exhibition, Jake Northrup and Slawek Kozub are exploring the polarized and unsettling quality of two separate strains of work, addressing similar atmospheres through opposing lexicons. Separately both artists deal with dark humor, mystery, and the goal of sparking the viewer’s curiosity and discomfort. Kozub addresses this front with a visceral presence that emphasizes texture and visual disorientation. Northrup confronts these issues through a flattening of space and a poignantly naïve representation of its inhabitants. In allowing these works to share a room, the artists hope to allow a dialogue to exist between their differences.
