Naughty or Nice? Opening Reception Sat. Dec. 16th 5-7pm
‘Some artists entertain while others entice, but what would the holidays be without a little spice? A devil licking an ice cream cone is both amusing and bemusing. King of Cadaques is a wonderful abstract work that pays homage to Cadaques, a small fishing village in Spain that captivated Dali, Miro and Picasso. A piece that begs the question was this King loved or feared and as Machiavelli posited, which is better?
Femme fatales of no acclaim but notorious all the same as they look on with innocence, if not blatant amusement, as their respective ex’s meet suspicious demises.
The allure of the provocateur. It is a theme that has resonated throughout history and will no doubt continue to engage forevermore.
Though we didn’t intend to steal Santa’s thunder by appropriating his naughty or nice list, we truly enjoy seeing it brought to life through a delightful curation of art. Spiderman versus The Joker by a master lego engineer. No telling who wins that battle as obviously neither can escape. Beautiful pages of books shot to obscure what words lie within. City streets painted with just enough detail to hide all their secrets.
Art is a fascinating creature with so many voices. Is it here to calm, comfort, challenge, excite, entertain, shock? The list could go on and on, but the amazing and wonderful thing is that it is still present and ever-evolving and we love being part of that evolution. Whether it be naughty or nice.‘
