Pretend Soup
January 16 - February 20, 2016
Opening Reception Jan. 16, 7 - 9p

Elastic Band Aura, butterflies, Pretend Soup. Listening to NPR (but in Canada so it’s CBC) way too loud in the kitchen because grandparents have old ears. The stereo sound through speakers that are at least older than I am, the speaker an old man, probably in his forties but way older than mom or dad. Older uncles with white hair but magic coming out of their fingertips. Cool people have no age. In the basement a green shag rug like Oscar the Grouch and a painting studio where still lifes from Montserrat are coming to life. A window scene with white light reflecting off snow. The magician makes paper dolls with his hands, painting little faces on them with a sharp tiny brush.
