INSERT | exclamatory |
A Seemingly random collection of work thematically connected
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday October 10th, 5-10 pm
Show dates: October 10, 2009 – December 6, 2009
Curator, Lainya Magaña, and Space07 are pleased to present Insert Exclamatory! A seemingly random collection of work thematically connected, a solo show featuring the work of Los Angeles-based artist, Michelle Constantine. The work for Insert Exclamatory! centers around the thematic connection of unexpected situations that have gone wrong in ways both specific to the artist and non-specific in terms of cultural and historical contexts. Constantine’s work thrives in these “wrong” situations; they are her best inspiration. By exploring these unexpected events through the unexpected use of bright, happy colors, Constantine finds peace in what has gone wrong and, ultimately, acceptance. For Insert Exclamatory! Constantine employs the folk craft of quilting to tell certain stories. Other pieces included utilize the techniques of printmaking, collage and photocopying.
