Beth Shadur

Show ran from 12/1/2000 to 12/23/2000

New Works, works on paper, ceramics

Shadur will be showing not only narrative works on paper, but ceramic sculpture pieces that also are narrative in content. The works use realism in their development of images, but are surreal in their combination of objects in unexpected scale and color. These pieces show Shadur’s signature rich, saturated palette as well as an almost compulsive attention to detail. In fact, obsession and compulsion have become a theme in these new works, as has the subject of “mid-life.” Shadur makes reference to autobiography with a nod to images of her time spent living in Colorado and Florida, yet she encompasses more universal symbols to reflect the thought of a woman approaching the middle years of her life.
