Susan Gold: Interior Decoration
January 18 to March 1, 2014
Opening Reception: Saturday January 18, 1-4pm
SB Contemporary Art is please to announce the opening of Susan Gold: Interior Decoration. This new body of work by Gold, there is a juxtaposition at play between our notions of private space, a domestic space and human’s unanswered obsession to capture, contain, and preserve the natural environment.
Small woodland animals, birds from foreign lands, polar bears from the icy Norwegian north peer out from the canvas, intertwined and folded into the décor’ that surrounds them. Botanical wallpapers line the walls, holding place and standing in for habitat environments.
In Gold’s work there is intrigue, and mystery to her ideas that focus on relationship between the “House as Museum and Museum as House”. There is a gentle critique represented of our own cultural values projected onto our living spaces.
Gold was born in Detroit, Michigan in 1946, attended Maryland Institute of Art, Monteith College and Wayne State University in Detroit. She has been an active artist and educator in Windsor Ontario since the 1970′s. Currently, she is a Professor Emerita from University of Windsor School of Visual Arts and the works out of one ten park: a working space, a shared activist studio in Windsor, Ontario.
