U T O P I A, Deborah F. Lawrence
June 1st - July 1st, 2006
The artist, depressed by the outcome of the last presidential election, sent out a mass mailing to several hundred of her closest friends asking for their views on building a better world and the Utopia was the result. Some of the ideas sent from the survey are incorporated in this body of work. The exhibition crosses over a number of social, political and economic boundaries, some with wit, others in all seriousness. The collages also bind different periods of time and architecture seamlessly. Deborah's work is as beautiful as it is provocative.
