Lvl6 Show @ Gostins

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.
