Roland - Culture Talk
silk-screened prints portray three greatly admired women and society’s
views on image enhancement.
Larsen is influenced by her work in the criminal justice system and
the racial disparity within it. She calls attention to the death penalty.
Her steel sculptures emanate a strong institutional vibe.
Coates - Altar
The Asheville Area Arts Council
presents the Faux Book Club’s American Standards, an all female show
running from May 17th to June 29th, 2005. An artist’s reception will
take place on Friday, May 20th from 6:00-8:00p.m. The five artists,
Connie Bostic, Brenda Coates, Linda Larsen, Marya Roland and Alice Sebrell,
began as a lunch group that wanted to form a book club. After months
of disagreeing the first read, they tossed the idea. The show, American
Standards, revolves around the issue that Americans have to deal with
so many different sets of standards in everyday life.
Sebrell - Where Do You Hide Your Fears?
40" x 30" Inkjet Print
Sebrell uses photography to question the human tendency to hide things
from ourselves and others as a means of self-protection.
Roland’s work includes an installation titled “Culture Talk” which is
a nine-foot video-eye tower with monitor and sound. She is concerned
with the personal and cultural attitudes about our bodies.
