Gallery 57 Underground presents DENOUEMENT, tandem solo exhibitions of recent work by Jeanne Andersen and Barbara McLaughlin
Encaustic in contemporary compostion with etched metal and minuscule bones barely describes the rich depth of McLaughlin's paintings. Her pantings are a mere half of her unusual presentation. Spent gun shells, clay nudes, metal hardware come together to evoke tongue-in-cheek.
Placed beside an in ironic song with McLaughlin's work, intrude the large, beat up canvases of Andersen. fighting line, clashing colors depict a social anger and depict an attempt to capture such wrath in the enormous power of nature.
