This is a follow-up to the Borderland post – the GAGA group show titled “A Certain Sense of Her” opened yesterday at the Coastal Bend College Gallery in Beeville, Texas.
In this photo, you are viewing the “quilt” sides of the paintings. Don’t they look amazing? Kudos to Sylvia Benitez and her GAGA installation crew for this great display.
You may remember that I was working on the reverse side of my “Borderland” painting in a recent post.
I decided to intersperse photocopied newspaper stories about the struggle on the border with canvas fragments from the palette I used while painting the front.
This is how it came out.
You can see it on the middle left in the installation photo at the top of this post. It makes a strong statement about the chaos on the border in a very different way that the painting itself does, like two sides of the same coin:
I wish I could have been in Beeville yesterday! But fortunately, Sylvia and the GAGAs posted a video of the installation. Just go the the GAGA homepage and scroll down to the video on the right. You’ll get a great inside view of the scope and drama of the installation.
I am so proud to be a part of this talented group of women!
What a fantastic exhibition! I love the concept. And the installation is inspired! Your piece is amazing as usual! What size was the format for your art? I would love to create my own piece on this theme.
Wow, just wow … the vision that led to this exhibition is extraordinary. To see it realized in video form is to want to see it all in person. Thank you for sharing your own journey to Borderlands …
Lyn, Congratulations on this show. I like your Border piece with the collages newspaper pieces.
