The Ostrich Diaries and Other Stories
Cynthia Atwood, Lucinda Bliss, Joanna House, Sage Lewis, Derek Smith Luke, Lisa Pixley and Sanjiban Sellew
The artists in this exhibit translate the accounts of their lives into marks, drips, stitches and frames. Joanna House’s bejeweled paintings depict transformed bodies. Derek Smith Luke’s video installation shares a tender, honest portrayal of domestic relationships. Lucinda Bliss‘s anthropomorphic ostriches come alive through their scratches, droplets and hues. The fabric and armature of Cynthia Atwood‘s sculpture speaks desire. Lisa Pixley‘s drawing installations articulate beautiful decay in charcoal. Sanjiban Selew’s films relate magical and domestic narratives. Sage Lewis‘ lines and lace project order in shares of white. These artists peer bravely into the subterranean and respond with work from the gut.
