Mikayla Whitmore
Magic Circle

March 29 - May 4, 2019

Opening March 29, 6-8p

David B. Smith Gallery is proud to present Magic Circle, a solo exhibition by Las Vegas-based photographer Mikayla Whitmore. Presented in the gallery's project room, Magic Circle taps into the lore of desert landscapes mingled with the art historical symbolism of the mirror. Functioning as both a tool of inward reflection and vehicle for story-telling, Whitmore's carefully placed mirrors echo untold narratives hidden in the desert sands.

Mikayla Whitmore’s main interest focuses on photography and installation – in particular, the overlap between both fields, specifically the phantom surrealism of the photographic image to explore the elusiveness of place, self-awareness, and memory. Her work explores the potential of the photographic medium and deconstructing the built-up facades she encounters in daily life. Selected exhibitions include Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art (NV), Torrence Art Museum (CA), and Humble Arts Foundation (NY). She currently lives in Las Vegas, Nevada.

David B. Smith Gallery is committed to presenting intelligent and culturally relevant exhibitions in its Denver location, featuring the region’s most important emerging talent alongside internationally recognized artists. The gallery also maintains an active publishing division, which produces exhibition catalogues and editions.
