Ambient Gallery opening night...
Erickson cuts apart her "landscape" into grided sections of mixed media allowing drips and charcoal to smear but remain contained next to borders of white voided canvas.
Also a nice balance of photography made the show flow together. I enjoyed the prints with the more painterly-collaged pieces.
The grid of boxed abstracted figures seemed a bit on the graphic side and didn't appeal to me as much, but who am I to say. I think Primary Space lost some art?
Ok, yes...fruit...but remember the gallery is still in Grosse Pointe. Change is slow sometimes.
And why not have a portrait done by Maniscalco of Carmen Harlan? Is she going to buy this? Well, she does look gosh darn pretty, don't she?
All and all....it was a good start and I hope to see what the gallery has in store for us.
