> DESCRIPTION

Los Angeles artist, Kristin duCharme will be presenting solo exhibition/installation as part of the 12 Gauge series From March 11–13, 2010. 

Kristin sets up the conditions for creative discovery by tapping into the viewer’s sense of subjects that are understood and familiar.

This Exhibition consists of such diverse pieces as a large hand knotted wool carpet, a ten-foot tall oil painting/sculpture and two upholstered wall sculptures. Together the traditionally domestic references of the materials and the imagery of children add to the implications evoked by this installation. By repositioning these references, the exhibition traverses the line of unspoken yet socially agreed upon rules with the candor of the viewer’s own humanity.

Through humor and Dada-ish overtones Kristin’s works are punctuated with a lump-in-the-throat seriousness when the viewer is struck by the quiet familiarity of subject mater as very personal.
