Steve Turner is pleased to present Showing Up, a solo exhibition by Vienna-based Brittany Tucker which features six new paintings that depict the artist’s quest to find identity in a difficult and confusing world. Tucker’s likeness is part of every painting: in an elevator, waist-deep in quicksand, falling off the earth and at the edge of a dance stage. In half the paintings, Tucker is paired with her longtime antagonist, a cartoon-like white man who often appears to be stalking her. Loosely painted in murky shades of gray with accents of black and white, the paintings pose more questions than they answer, but they still reveal a central character who is showing up.
