One of my monoprint lithographs from the Blue-Collar Sugar series has been selected into RedLine’s 5th-Annual Juried exhibition Rethinking Urbanism. The exhibit was curated by RedLine’s Executive Director, Louise Martorano.
On view: June 22, 2018 through July 22, 2018
The works featured in Rethinking Urbanism explore the social, cultural and political complexities of urban space. These complexities emerge in part through abstracted representations of density as with the work of Ramona Freeman, or the distillation of color that conveys a sense of bleakness as with Frank Lucero's "Traces of our Hands." The urban aesthetic and tone that connect the selected works all contribute to the defining of a metropolis-state. In this case, that definition takes shape in multiples and en masse, but with curiously a lack of human representation thus conveying a sense of urban isolationism rather than shared or communal space.
