Chimerical Coitions   Pick-button-f22fa879042524f5c7b8d2278b2983b8
Aaron Curry, Richard Hawkins at David Kordansky Gallery October 28th, 2011 - December 10th, 2011

Chimera gets close to capturing it. Not in that figurative sense of the impossible wished for thing, but in the old, weird Greek definition of chimera: a fire-breathing female monster, part lion, goat, and serpent, combined together in ways that are invariably wonky, the goat's head poking out of the lion’s back or the lion's head poking out of the goat’s neck, the snake lending itself formally to always simply being the tail.
