Kirk Hopper Fine Art presents Annabel Livermore and Mary McCleary: "Reckoning" opening reception
Kirk Hopper Fine Art will present an exhibition for artists Annabel Livermore and Mary McCleary. "Reckoning," curated by Susie Kalil, brings together two fiercely independent artists who live and work in isolation outside the art mainstream. Both produce layered, ambiguous narratives that address the core issues of our time. Raw, tactile, eviscerating and more relevant than ever, Livermore’s luminous, visionary paintings and McCleary’s illusionistic mixed media collages both skewer and reimagine the “hot zone” topics of the real world: power, greed, religion, an unforgiving economic order.
Throughout "Reckoning," Livermore and McCleary set up metaphorical relationships among and between images and words, weaving mythic tales out of ordinary experience. Moving seamlessly between the gritty realm of the real and the more primary-colored world of the fable, the artists explore the ways superstitions, cultural beliefs, or supernatural legends reveal, and reflect back, our identities and communities: our fears, hatreds, sympathies and dreams.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through January 12.
