Good Christian Children by Marion Peck, oil on canvas, 2010 – click to enlarge
‘Tis possibly the stupidest of all times to post this, as Sloan remains closed from today, Dec 20 until Jan 4, but sensible timing was never my strength.
I must admit that I’m really not that excited by most of the work featured in What You Are, So Once Were We and I honestly can’t make out much artistic progress in Marion’s portraits over the past few years, but I always enjoyed her weirdly enticing landscapes with their naïve perspective and clear-cut, exposed narrative. So, personally speaking, I would really just go and see this show for Good Christian Children – which you all are anyway.
Talking about factories: Marion’s new hardbound monograph, Animal Love Summer is now available through Thee Porterhouse Empire (ov Doom).
Also exhibiting at Sloan’s project space is Brad Woodfin whose menagerie of perturbed animals emerging from the dark looks techniqually way more interesting. You can preview Brad’s The Strangers show here.
Now make yourselves useful and go buy me this macaroon maker, this box ‘o shirts, this bambi skirt, this hardwood Victorinox knife, this first aid kit, this wallpaper and this monograph for x-mess. Bitteschön. Dankeschön.
