Down Paradise Way
August 14—September 20, 2008
Asa Chibas, Ilana Cohen, Suzanne Siegel, Ann Toebbe
Down Paradise Way features four artists represented in the Flatfile who draw our attention to often ignored details in everyday spaces. Asa Chibas photographs details in the landscape, coloring and accentuating using thread and stitching. Ilana Cohen pays attention to street architecture and infuses portraits of parking meters and metal grates with blooming wild flora. Suzanne Siegel’s watercolor drawings of big-box store parking lots empasize overlooked islands, lights and rooflines. Ann Toebbe’s drawings turn cluttered functional living space into shattered forms, drawing attention to objects in the rooms.
