Lost at Sea: Recap
Oct. 10th – Nov. 9h, 2008 Opening Reception: Friday, October 10th, 6-10pm
Not that we didn’t expect it, but CJ Metzger and Miss Mindy swept us away with their amazing work for this show! CJ and Mindy were an absolute pleasure to work with, and we hope to collaborate with them in the future. Thanks to all of those who came out on Friday, and for those that missed it, be sure to check it out before it’s too late. There’s still a bunch of gorgeous prints and original works left, so hopefully we’ll see you at Subtext soon (the show runs through November 9th).
Plunge into a world of mermaids, sea nymphs, and other marine creatures at Subtext Gallery’s exhibition of new works by CJ Metzger and Miss Mindy. The Artist Sisters paint an under-water world of wonder inspired by Mother Nature. Through whimsy, humor, and satire the paintings and drawings introduce themes of harmony, chaos, and ecology. CJ and Mindy draw the audience into a utopia where humans and Earth are in balance, where beauty and comedy intersect in a poignant tribute to our fragile existence. The body of work draws an analogy between the oceans’ ever-changing waters and the ebb and flow of earthly life- an existence that vacillates between turbulence and calm, from wild currents to the doldrums. The paintings ask the audience to explore its relationship with the natural world and to evaluate the deep waters within each of us. Do we control our earthly fates, or are we all just Lost At Sea?
