My friend Jen says that artists manipulate emotions, that’s just what they do. She also says that making art is inherently narcissistic. To have an idea and be so consumed and obsessed with it that you have to get it out into the world and give it audience outside your own brain. I am not sure if this is narcissism, but I do know that my friend has a beautiful sensibility, and provocative ideas about memories, time, and the decay of both. The textures and colors of the pieces in the show recollect dual landscapes of the mind: violent and tranquil, coexisting in memory. Jen’s show officially begins tomorrow, July 25, 6 o’clock, at Ice Cube Gallery. The works are gorgeous, both Jen’s and Jan McMahan’s.
