24 May The Labors of Hercules, new work by Ed Smith, and Skin Deep, new drawings by Joy Taylor
From May 24 through June 29, 2008 BCB ART presents The Labors of Hercules, new work by ED SMITH, and Skin Deep, new drawings by JOY TAYLOR.
Ed Smith’s The Labors of Hercules recounts not only the mythic struggle of Hercules as he attains his promised immortality, but also the internal and external demands placed upon the artist.
On exhibit are group of sculptures and charcoal drawings which capture this struggle.
Joy Taylor’s new Skin Deep works begin with a printed image found in a doctor’s office: an idealized portrait that oftentimes is used to denote sensory changes. This chart becomes the ‘head’ for a diverse body of personages, executed in drawing and collage, which change from day to day and emotion to emotion.
Also on display will be a group exhibition of gallery artists, including work by:
Sedat Pakay, and others
