Some good stuff here, worth braving the weather. I engaged with John’s offering more than any other. Not sure why. I really like Poor Art and his use of cardboard was very human. I think I’ve always assumed that my life will reduce to a cardboard home and that’s what John did here. Great animation too. All sort of low quality and vulnerable/romantic because of it. Strong.
Liz Smith showed a large black encaustic work. Love how she hung it in the dark too. All the light was from one side which brought the blackness into focus wonderfully, like a landscape lit by a low sun. Nice. Appeals to the goth in me.
A shelf with painted tin cans also entertained me a while. Graphics were whimsical with strong aesthetic.
