Suggestivism is the companion catalogue to a vibrantly fresh exhibition presented by Cal State University's Grand Central Art Center from February to April 2011. The exhibit coins this new art term to refer to a genre of artwork encompassing the rising stars of the contemporary art world. Suggestivism is the embodiment of each artist's individual intent in his or her own art pieces, created with a unique sense of purpose, amplified understanding, and sensitivity to outside visual stimuli. Drawing from interior and exterior influences, the artists featured work in a variety of different mediums to present vivid scenes that leave narrative to the imagination and meaning open to interpretation. Often intricate and evocative of the richness and languid decadence of historical tableaus, the artwork in Suggestivism contains elements of world-weariness, isolation, and a sense of the absurd. Suggestivism features more than fifty artists, including the likes of Chris Mars, Brendan Monroe, Alex Gross, Mia, Audrey Kawasaki, Michael Page, MARS-1, Dalek, Jeff Soto, Ron English, Elizabeth McGrath, Tara McPherson, Scott Musgrove, Greg Simkins, Skinner, and Robin Williams. Includes studio shots and artist interviews conducted during the two years of exhibition curation.
