Solo exhibition of work by artist Ellen Frances Tuchman. The paintings in the exhibition are a counterpoint to mass production with their luscious patterning and surface embellishments, immediately throwing them into a conversation about the decorative, the value of beauty, high-low art, women's handwork, femininity, and male potency. Tuchman explores thematic conceits and plays-on-words, preferring to use 'forbidden' materials as pigment on a translucent Mylar ground. Many pieces are intentionally sentimental, telling universal stories with paint, sewing, and much ornament.
