Exhibit: “Weird Party on the Other Side of the Hedge” Paintings by Megan Berk at Recession Art
January 21 – March 11, 2012 | OPENING January 21 6 pm to Midnight
Featured Artist Megan Berk will inaugurate RAC and kick off Recession Art’s solo shows with Weird Party on the Other Side of the Hedge, a show that explores the impulse towards heaven. In abstracted landscapes and altered architectural spaces, a sort of bright beyond is suggested where light meets shadow. These moments of possibility allude as much to the idea of heaven as they might to an idealized future, the idea of Summer before it has arrived, or the improbable optimism that drives creative progress. They seek to transform moments of desire, self-delusion, and optimism into form and color; In this way, they echo religious painting, though the icons here are taken from the glossy pages of architecture and lifestyle magazines.
