Opening Night Photos: Chloe Early x Amy SolJuxtapoz // Tuesday, 26 Oct 2010
Early’s show is a loose contemporary narrative about Adam and Eve, based upon Milton’s Paradise Lost. The twelve oil paintings depict humans in motion, caught between a romantic, flowery reality and a harder fallout of post industrialization. In our recent interview with Early, she explains that she is “interested in showing a breath of painterly language in the work.”
Upstairs in the loft, Amy Sol’s mini-solo Dear Milky Way offers a vertitable ‘love letter to the cosmos.' Composed of 11 paintings and drawings, all created during the last 6 months, the exhibit features works that “started with a question, sometimes a reflection, sometimes just a feeling - like admiration or heartache, and then wove itself out of that first inspiration.”
Together, both solos compliment one another beautifully. Both Early and Sol’s latest works show artists with immense talent and creativity, offering their own visions of a complex and dreamlike world.
