Karolina Gnatowski: We Have to Believe We Are Magic

Karolina Gnatowski
We Have To Believe We Are Magic
May 2 - August 13 2012 -- Opening Reception, Tuesday May 22 from 6-9pm

Eye Lets, 11.5' x 6.5', yarns, findings

For our summer show we are exhibiting the work of Karolina Gnatowski. Karolina creates physically rich, bodily works that operate through a psychedelic lens turning textures, colors and woven structures into wall hung protagonists and other strange characters.  Working  against the backdrop of craft traditions like the Bauhaus, Gnatowski confronts these ideals through surface embellishment and the addition of pop culture iconography from the 1960s and 70s. By playing with combinations of imagery, affects and handicraft sensibilities from these great utopian failures she assesses available values and meanings in the contemporary landscape. 

Please join us for the opening reception and a chance to meet Karolina on Tuesday, April 17, 6-9 pm. Lula will provide hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar featuring drink specials.
