First Thursday Art Opening featuring the works of Cait O’Darling

The February Oklahomans for Equality (OkEq) showcase and exhibit of local artists at the Dennis R. Neill Equality Center (621 E. 4th Street in Downtown Tulsa) will feature the works of Cait O’Darling in a show titled "Mensonges d'amour" (Lies of Love), beginning with a reception on Thursday, February 2nd from 6-9pm and continuing throughout the month.

Cait O’Darling holds a PhD in American Studies and an MA in Comparative Philosophy from the University of Hawai'i at Manoa. She graduated summa cum laude from Flagler College in St Augustine, Florida, with a dual major in Philosophy and Religion, and a dual minor in Latin American Studies and Photography. O'Darling studied painting and sculpture at the Instituto Allende, a visual arts school located in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. She is the recipient of numerous awards and scholarships, and has taught college courses in art, American history, and philosophy. This will be the first time her work has been exhibited in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

Cait O’Darling’s show, "Mensonges d'amour" (Lies of Love), features twenty composite photos. This series explores the power of a single gesture across multiple iterations. Cait boldly re-composes the embodied performance of a single "Selfie" and adds new angles and juxtapositions. She seeks to undermine a core concept of photography, namely, indexicality: the notion that what is depicted within the frame of a photograph tells us something true about the perceived reality at the moment the shutter was released and the image was captured. Blending and layering multiple images together, O’Darling creates new and fanciful ones that are patently untrue. A mockumentary, the exhibit offers viewers an opportunity to enter into a playful space of delight and amusement, woven between truth and illusion.

The show begins with a reception on Thursday, February 2nd from 6-9pm where Stephanie Oliver and Annie Ellicott will provide opening night music; also, there will be a door prize drawn of the artist’s work. The show continues throughout the month. www.okeq.org
