Bloom Projects: Keith Puccinelli,The Foul Stain of We
Santa Barbara-based Keith Puccinelli uses an irreverent quick wit, modest materials, and tableaux to broach the conflict between the preciousness of life and man’s disregard for life during times of war, to create a kind of carnival of sorrow. The strong juxtaposition of materials and a passion for wordplay often brings a sense of humor to glaze or emphasize the serious or tragic presented in the work.
Opening Reception: August 7, 7PM
