Eat a Peach ____ NOVEMBER 2017
A three-person show with artists Brittany Mojo, Kristy Luck and Anabel Juarez. A pleasure poem is written that provides a warm confident taste and reveals an intimate relationship with the body that brushes up to the viewer in a soft come hither way.
Each piece becomes a record, acknowledging the exchange between artist and the physicality of the artist's chosen material. Pressing, stacking, and smudging accumulates to a self-portrait, a skin, a body. Mojo creates joints and seams to effortlessly transition from one material to another. Juarez's clay rubbings and ceramics, made through pressure and movement, are impressions of a past, present, or future self. Luck layers pictorial space using cold wax and oil paint to create windows into insides and outsides.
Overall, the whole is more than the sum of its parts. Luck's anthropomorphic organic forms curl and bulge, often revealing details of something larger, while Juarez provides only glimpses of the objects behind her rubbings. The grouping emphasizes an undaunted sensuality. Mojo plays with sexuality in her piece "Heat, heat" which can be turned on and off, as Luck's shapes perk and pulsate. A bite, a tickle, a taste.
