Bride of Monster

Until:

Creativity Explored, a San Francisco non-profit art center for artists with developmental disabilities, presents Bride of Monster, a small-group featuring wild and woolly new interpretations of female monsters from film, folklore, and mythology.

Creativity Explored 2 Studio Manager E. Francis Kohler curated this exhibition, which he hopes will provoke thought about the historical relationship between representations of monsters and people with disabilities. Bride of Monster is a long-coming third installment of the 2003 exhibition, Monster, and two years later, Revenge of Monster. “It’s been 12 years, and I thought it might be kind of fun to revisit monsters and disability – this time, complicating the theme by adding the layer of women, another group that has been historically oppressed."

With works ranging from a series of repurposed mannequinn heads to bold, graphic renderings of yōkai from Japanese folklore, Bride of Monster is a must-see this October.

Featured artists include Christina Marie Fong, Thomas Pringle, Yukari Sakura, Gerald Wiggins, and Richard Wright.

SMALL is an impressive group exhibition of over 100 small-scale works by more than 40 artists, and is one of the most diverse shows that Creativity Explored Gallery has ever presented. No piece is larger than seven inches square, though separately, and as a whole, the work speaks volumes. Miniature ceramics, woodblock paintings, ink drawings, watercolors and mixed-media pieces that range in style and subject matter keep each other company˜it‚s a veritable Noah‚s Ark of an art exhibition. Distinct themes do emerge however; this show demonstrates the unique freedom that tight parameters offer an artist, enabling them to work with life‚s minutia or its immensity˜on one hand focusing on human gestures, the turn of a phrase, internal organs and the formal qualities of line, shape and color, and on the other hand exploring flight, geography, landscape, and architecture.
