Chuck Tingley’s installation Stream layers mixed media on unstretched canvas to create a visual and narrative structure that combines childhood memories and contemporary culture in a way that disregards logical sequence in favor of a stream of consciousness format. These reconstructions and personal observations of the human condition serve as tangible expressions of memory while exploring the absurd, humorous and mundane aspects of life.
