“In Pursuit of Beauty” at Montserrat
From my review of “In Pursuit of Beauty” at Montserrat College of Art:
The seduction of lush, sexy, decorative pattern is the subject of "In Pursuit of Beauty" at Montserrat College of Art. Curator Leonie Bradbury brings together five international artists whose work is part of a trend that embraces (with feminist undertones) beauty and rejects Modernist hating on decoration. (Other local artists, like Mary O'Malley and Resa Blatman, are coalescing around this style as well.)Read the rest here.
