Red Grooms: Torn From The Pages II

at Marlborough Gallery
March 19 – April 19, 2014

Commentary by Hanne H7L, NowJournal.com

 Here in Red Grooms new work of nineteen small mixed media three-dimensional constructions Red Grooms  continues to celebrate other artists and their work.
We find Joseph Cornell of course in a box with blue sand juxtaposed with an object in “Sandtrap”.
The red haired Yayoi Kusama in “Galactic Orbs” is seen in three dimensions with her famous colorful dots all over created by watercolor, acrylic, ink and digital print on illustration and foam board.
 
Red naturally selected lots of colors to depict Frida Kahlo and her mexican house in “Casa Azul”.  Frida is clearly in the foreground and in the background is seen her husband Diego Rivera.
There is as always with Red’s work playfullness and a lot of things going on with the use of many different materials. In this exhibit Red has incorporated collages from magazines with other media.
One leaves the exhibit feeling uplifted.
