Karen Moss: What Remains
February 3 – March 13, 2011
Art Institute of Boston Gallery at University Hall
"Mossís show What Remains features work from three series Coloring Book Hybrids, Walnut Ink Drawings and The Commuter. In works from all three series, Moss will treat viewers to intriguing, lingering and unusual depictions of everyday life, as we in the western world, know it. With the pieces from Coloring Book Hybrids, Moss takes playful jabs and a deeper look at societal norms with erratic and over the top color schemes, character hybrids and jarring manipulations. The content in her work exhibited from Walnut Ink Drawings are drawn from recent news items and happenings in the print media. These works delve into the deeper meanings behind gender roles, violence and matters of the home while evoking a sense of nostalgia by using a sepia color scheme. Finally we see a mixed media narrative entitled The Commuter with the main protagonist being an art student who manifests into a blue rabbit traveling and assimilating to urban landscapes and rural areas."
