Here and Now (Olympia)
Amy Honchell: An Abiding Locale
LivingRoom Gallery, Chicago, IL
June 20-August 2, 2008
Inspired by the history and composition of Manet’s Olympia, Honchell's wire drawing Here and Now juts out from the wall and assumes the profile of a jagged cliff. When viewed from the front, many kinds of scenes are evoked from a surreal landscape to a reclining nude.
