Event:Curator talk: Jiha Moon (Atlanta based artist) will lead a casual discussion about her curatorial effort, Life Iconic. A group print exhibition now on view at Get This! Gallery.
The group print exhibition Life Iconic, showcases the work of ten exciting emerging/mid career artists whose works engage with the idea of iconography in life. Iconography is evident in all of these artists’ work, and is drawn from subjects as varied as everyday life, nature and pattern, minimalism and abstraction throughout the exhibition. For some of the artists it appears in a bold and graphic style, for others it is as their subject or an inventive device, and for yet others it may be a subtle undercurrent.

…After The Suburbs
by guest curator Karen Tauches
After all, the suburbs promised to be a neat, new, affordable Eden. It was that in-between station where middle class, industrialized citizens could be part of the city and yet breathe a little easier with the countryside nearby. Now, the spacious suburbs hold a position of great potential for a population needing to reconnect with Nature.

Sharon Shapiro: California
Shapiro’s paintings and watercolors drawn from a range of photographic sources, address stereotypical depictions of women. In this new body of work, Shapiro lovingly reproduces these found photos into images of intense sensuality and eroticism. Embracing ideas of sex-positive feminism, Shapiro celebrates the power of female sexuality placing it front and center. Shapiro’s skill as a colorist is put to good use in exploring ideas of femininity and naturalism.

TWIN KITTENS is pleased to present PATRIARCHS | MATRIARCHS, Dale Inglett’s first solo show in Atlanta.  The show will consist of videos, paintings and prints- all of which are abstractions of photographs from the turn of the previous century.

Inglett shares, “This body of work stems from an investigation of photographs of my ancestors. Using these as source images for paintings, video and prints, I attempt to challenge the fixed quality that photos seem to attach to identity, and to get at something more ineffable than likenesses. The works present, instead, the ever-shifting nature of identity. We change with every breath. I’m replacing the “proof” presented in photos with a re-imagining, a fiction, the unknown.”
