Organic Excess      drawings

Opening Reception: Friday,  May 27    6-9pm

In her exhibition, “Organic Excess,” Angela Piehl’s drawings delve into the darker undertones of bourgeois lifestyles, although their black and white atmospheres are a world away from the ironically bright and cheery palette of the images she mines for source material. She atomizes, abstracts and combines editorial and advertising images with organic material like flesh, bone, fat, hair, plant-life, and crystalline structures to create semi-narrative biomorphic abstractions; grotesque creatures imbued with the power to both attract and repel, and the potential to host projections of human emotion and desire.
