Mary King: Curious Home and Soap Is A Noun
@ Epiphany Center for the Arts
201 S Ashland Ave, Chicago, IL 60607
Opening Saturday, March 26th, from 6PM - 9PM
On view through Saturday, April 30th
In Curious Home and Soap is a Noun, Chicago artist Mary King presents two new bodies of work. Curious Home consists of small sculptures that could be doll houses or buildings partially destroyed from a disaster, whether it be weather or war. Nothing is for sure here. These sculptures look cute but hint at danger. They are made of paper and polymer mediums. Watercolor pieces are painted separately, cut out and adhered. Sometimes papier mâché figures or small toys are displayed with the sculptures.
Soap is a Noun consists of small paintings that play with words: words that are both a noun and a verb or that can be read forwards and backwards. The paintings are hung unframed or mounted on corrugated plastic and displayed on a small shelf
With Curious Home and Soap is a Noun, King offers an antidote to the extreme and intense opinions and the mean tweets that are so popular in today’s culture. They add some levity to our situation and we don’t know quite where we stand.
