ELISABETH HIGGINS O’CONNOR @ Charlie James Gallery


Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor upcoming show at Charlie James Gallery opens November 5.  Titled Dreadful Sorry Clementine, Elisabeth’s solo exhibit takes its name from a children’s nursery rhyme – the original being sing-songy and childish, but contrasted with dark, melodramatic lyrics. This contrast relates to Elisabeth’s work as well, as she continues her practice of walking the line between familiarity and chaos. Working with commonly available materials such as bed sheets, bedding and other discarded domestic fabrics; Elisabeth creates sculptural works that address the unique fascination we experience with the allure of the grotesque.

If you’re a fan of Elisabeth’s work track down a copy of Beautiful/Decay: Supernaturalism which features an in-depth interview with the artist. Unfortunately the book is sold out but with some digging you can probably find one on eBay. Just another reason to subscribe to B/D and avoid missing a book featuring your next favorite artist.

Dexter Fernandez’s Art is porn, and porn is art

Dexter Fernandez bravely experiments with images culled from adult magazines and puts a new spin on them by adding layers of mixed media on the repainted images. Thus, he only hints at their original context, as he turns them into nearly abstract configurations, especially when viewed from a distance. Fernandez is not afraid to say, “Art is porn, and porn is art,” not drawing a line between what is acceptable and what is taboo. To him, both aim to entertain and satisfy the senses.

GERALDINE JAVIER

 

Like a butterfly stopping by to smell the flowers, Geraldine Javier pauses to interpret her subjects in a manner that they begin to come to life again. She combines both classic and contemporary compositions, injecting Filipino cultural references into each piece. Her attention to detail remains evident, and she even takes it further in her three-dimensional works, using materials like textile, preserved beetles and butterflies, embroidery, and resin to create her arresting works.

Russ Meyer’s EVE

 

Russ Meyer was the director, play-writer and producer who became famous for his cheaply made and bizzare sexploitation movies such as “Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill” and “Beneath The Valley Of The Ultravixens.” When Russ wasn’t making movies he kept busy taking pin-up photographs of many of the models and actresses he worked with.
