ambient gallery

Image hosted by Photobucket.com



Coinciding with the spirits of celebrating the city of Detroit with the auto show and also the super bowl coming...Ambient Gallery has a show up featuring Darcel Deneau's Detroit  landscapes. I understand the push to show "detroit" content related art but is this the way the city should be going when it has a chance to knock the socks off of its visitors? DAM will have its "stylize" show up...once again another design based show... I just hope that Hilberry will have a more representative show of detroit artists to attract art attention. It would have been great to have had the CAID biennial show up during the superbowl!

Maybe Hilberry will have Clint Snider's paintings of Detroit detritus and other representative decay. That's what sells baby. Detroit as grunge and grit.That's our "aesthetic" to push.

I wonder when i'm supposed to start seeing what Darcel has been trying to accomplish with these paintings that she has been doing for the last 5 years.

yeah...I wonder too? aren't artists supposed to grow and try new things? well...i guess there are no rules and a lot of famous artists stuck with the same thing for years too.

i think you're right i also feel like not developing new work is a protection of sorts. I always feel when an artist stagnates it may indicate that the artist is unwilling to resolve what their specific issue is.
