Raucous, features work by Kelly Boehmer, Jaime Bull, Christina Foard, Vivian Liddell, and Erin McIntosh. These five women are all working to explode power structures with color and fiber.
Kelly Boehmer, a Professor of Foundation Studies at Savannah College of Art and Design, creates hand-sewn sculptures from reused materials. Colorful fabrics and flowers add a playful quality to her otherwise somewhat grotesque “Puppy” sculpture.
Jaime Bull, adjunct professor at the University of Georgia (UGA) as well as works at the Lyndon House Arts Center in outreach, also creates hand-sewn sculptures out of repurposed materials. Her enormous torsos, created from vintage bathing suits, are stuffed with plastic bags.
Christina Foard, an established painter currently enrolled as an MFA degree candidate at UGA, explores the tabletop as a metaphor/arena for examining relationships, family, and politics.
Vivian Liddell’s current body of work explores the male nude deriving compositions from art history’s greats like DeKooning and Rubens. Vivian teaches at the University of North Georgia (UNG).
Erin McIntosh, Assistant professor at UNG, has created new paintings for Raucous. A prolific artist guided by intuition, Erin’s media varies from watercolor to oils, and her subject matter often include biomorphic forms and imagery inspired by the complexity of nature.
An artists panel is scheduled for Saturday, August 3, 2:00 pm.
