unobtrusively obvious

Unobtrusively Obvious | Takt Summer Group Show 2016
curated by Isolde Krams

The title of this show is an oxymoron!
Arguably all art is “obvious”, open to view or knowledge, perhaps blatant.
But is great art obvious?
The artists in this show have impressed by being unobtrusive, unpretentious.
Only by close inspection do meanings become apparent.
Sometimes just small hints give further insight.These art works are not self-evident. The meaning of certain images is hidden.

” Art is a step from what is obvious and well-known toward what is arcane and concealed”. Kahlil Gibran
