hello! i think i am officially back! and WOW, i have so much to post i don't even know where to begin. so i think i might play it much easier and be a bit heavier on images and light on the verbage so you guys get more bang for your proverbially buck. k? k.
so here goes...
i got an email form michael mcconnell a month or so ago directing me to his latest show at braunstein/quay gallery:
inspired by stories that examine loneliness, responsibility, and choice, michael mcconnell explores the tensions between youth and maturity. "i fear I have no voice. i don't remember the details of my childhood, but long to tell my story." at first glance, mcconnell's drawings and sculptures read like fairy tales with playful images of children and animals seducing the viewer into the work. closer observation, however, strips away the innocence and confronts the viewer with dark stories of skepticism and failure.
had i not been in the land of no computer (a very lonely place mind you) i would have gotten this up during the show, but alas i just have images for you. which, are pretty darn good if i do say so.
