Lineup round 4, From the Gut, with Heart at SUGAR

Gwendolyn Skaggs reopened SUGAR last weekend with Lineup round 4, From the Gut, with Heart.
I'm posting just a sampling of the images, but please check out SUGAR's website for more. There are so many interesting conversations in this show.

I love this shot juxtaposing my painting next to a portion of Christy's

and this shot too.

A wonderful painting by the late Ed Sanders. 

round 4
From the Gut, with Heart
04.21.12 - 06.03.12
This installation focuses on, and gives emphasis to, the give and take/push and pull that develops when positioning artworks together as objects, releasing them from their makers reins, into my own. In round 4 these objects are kin to words. A narrative that begins with Erika Keck's Rosebud, and punctuated with a period by Carla Knopp's Prone. The artworks anchored, and securely suspended, in between are rich with sentiment, weight, implication, complication, and justification bound by my continuous will and determination to "write" a complete sentence defining "relevancy and meaning" (and the art of). The end result is From the Gut, with Heart, an installation at SUGAR, and, what I have recently been told... "A writers dream". -Gwendolyn Skaggs
