Pablo’s Birthday is please to present Picture this, a summer group show exhibiting three artist that create distinct “digital paintings” that define a line between the real and the imagined. Each artist constructs hybrid spaces that imply an almost infinite recombination of the past and present, while exploring and exploiting shared intersections between photography and painting. Thematically rich, and with poignant asides to art history, literature, and pop culture, these works simultaneously appear impossibly illusory and undeniably hyper-real.
