“Homeroom” unites artists with their younger selves

With modern tools and media, artists have been able to cheat, manipulate, and even construe the passage of time. The work of photographer Irina Werning is a prime example of using photography as a time machine to compress decades. We just looked at Katie Grinnan’s efforts to freeze a moment in time. What if drawings could traverse the years, bringing you face-to-face with your childhood self? Subtext Gallery recently hosted “Homeroom”, a show of 20 adult artists who interpreted a drawing they did as a child in their current style. Artists from all over submitted work, including Audrey Kawasaki from LA, Nimit Malavia from Canada, and Joey Leung Ka-yin from China. The San Diego gallery ran the show from November 11th until December 11th and you can see more at their blog. Hover over each image below to see the artist and click on it to go to their website.
What are some other examples of how art can alter the illusion of time?
