This Week at Art MoCo
by sabine7 / March 17, 2006

Art MoCo kicked off the week in high heels with Willie Cole’s sculptures and mandalas made from cast-off footwear.

Bobbie Moline-Kramer followed up with a gamut of emotions, as represented by those sitting for their portraits. It’s hard not to be in a good mood when faced with an infectious grin such as Cheryl’s.

The grin keeps going when faced with more shots by Martin Parr, this time from his Fashion Show series. Noteworthy are his Essex Girls, who display a fine combination of style and attitude.

Andrew Gadd’s paintings are fascinating works that give away the influences of the Old Masters. One wants to enter right into the narrative and be part of Gadd’s stories. And of course, if one wanted to emulate photographer Liz Rideal, one would simply have to enter into a photo booth, her tool of the trade. Rideal then uses the photos produced this way in collages laid out in grids.

Another artist who is adept at gridwork would be Jennifer Bartlett, who uses a variety of brushstrokes and techniques to work around the simple shape of a house.

Spring is on its way, so we say a hopeful farewell to the winter with a look at Yutaka Sone’s exhibition, Forecast: Snow, which features the white stuff by way of painting, photography, sculpture, carving and video. SM
