So it seems that I am going to be in North America several months too late- at the moment their featured exhibition is Tragic Kingdon: The Art of Camille Rose Garcia.
Black Kraken Hijack, 2004. Acrylic and glitter on wood, 48×48 inches.
From the gallery’s website:
Garcia’s most recent series, the artist states, searches for “beauty and hope in a doomed world, with ice caves, mountains, and deep seas all forming a landscape of the subconscious in which characters forage for elusive and fragile moments of optimism.”
That sounds beautiful, and so encapsulating. Being surrounded by rooms of her paintings is just what I need right now.
I have also missed an amazing Andy Warhol focus (screenings of Edie Sedgwick’s oeuvre) in the last few weeks, and am currently missing out on Rare ‘Spider-Man Screenings’ at New York’s Museum of the Moving Image.
