Life is a Gas at Frank Brockman Gallery

"Life is a Gas" has been hung at Frank Brockman Gallery in Brunswick, Maine.  This lovely gallery at 68 Maine Street has an incredible space on its third floor.  The bones of the building stand out.  The walls are worn.  This offers an excellent canvas for my works from the "Antoinette Gasmask" series and Jessica Beebe's "Last One Standing" series.  

Together these works and this space offer a circular story line about being female in a misogynist culture.  It offers up the defeat of living in a world with microaggressions like the drone on a white noise: you do not realize it is there until it is gone.

Notes from a Meeting

Unicorns will poke your nose.

If you have no eyes fish will swim in your head.

Angry bunnies need to have fun, too.

It's MY egg!
