In her latest work, Carol McMahon returns to themes of home and childhood.
McMahon will be showing assemblages using found furniture, objects and toys. Sometimes elegant, awkward, forlorn, or humorous, this work underlines the uncertainties and mysteries of domestic life.
"Homage to Utrecht's 'Still Life with Cockatoo'" (detail from installation), mixed media, 95" x 45" x 41", 2015 (photo by Will Howcroft)
The work in Kathleen Volp’s latest exhibition "PRONK!" is an exuberant contemporary dialog with a 17th-century painting by Adriaen van Utrecht in the tradition of Dutch pronk still lifes (after the verb pronk, meaning to "show off").
Volp, who works in assemblage, combines materials including fake fruit, faux cockatoos, thrift-shop antiques and wood-grained spandex to address the parallels between the “ostentatious display” of commodities during the Dutch Golden Age and today’s conspicuous consumption.
