Michele Abeles

Michele Abeles Work from English for Secretaries “Ms. Abeles’s images are radiant, seductive and mysterious. They invite and thwart reading. She weaves images and patterns into collagelike, even quiltlike mashups that are nonlinear rebuses — rebuses speaking in tongues. They cross and recross the line between abstraction and representation, also between private and public, between […]

Catharine Maloney

Catharine Maloney Work from Teleplay Part I. Maloney’s works lack subtlety with the same mix  of self-awareness and self-deprecation that would permit one to wear a faux-star trek uniform constructed of a pastel turtleneck and what looks to be American cheese. This is the power of the work, it expertly capitalizes on the nostalgia driven zeitgeist that breeds the desire […]
