there are only a few days left
to see this show which i've been
meaning to see since it opened
almost a month ago. it closes on december 17.
or you can see it here
i went because i've only ever seen the work
of hannelore baron in reproduction.
i expected to be moved by baron's work
and was not disappointed but it was
the figures by vanessa german that were revelatory.
contructed of all manner of found object
attached by different means to black doll figures
they are more than the sum of their disparate parts:
beautiful, moving, troubling.
there are also a series of rose-window like
fabric constructions by donna sharrett.
these are lovely but did not move as the other work did.
it can be viewed on the gallery website.
