Baloney & Cheese
March 6 - April 18
Have you ever had someone try to “sell” themselves to you, by attempting to mirror your interests; working every angle to replicate sincere human connection for the sole purpose of getting in you—like a handful of unwelcome keys being frantically shoved at your lock? Have you experienced when a persons’ entire fixation has centered wholly on you, with an unnerving intensity, right up until the very moment they discover that you’re not going to have sex with them and then *POOF!* they disappear into the ether? This exhibition was borne out of decades of experiencing the tedium of those types of interactions; the work stems from the feeling of not being regarded as a person so much as a sexual conquest. The exhibit is a series of sculptures and paintings featuring metaphoric depictions of childish behaviour, mindless sexual consumption, insincerity, self-serving social interactions, and, of course, being cheesy and full of baloney.
