This past weekend The Lamont Bishop gallery opened it’s door with a solo show by Annie Kielman (last seen looking adorable at our VDay shooted). Her work stems from an exploration of a deliberate distortion of the human form—not in a violent or grotesque manner, but rather with subtle tweaks that create intrigue simply because they are counter-intuitive. She stresses her discovery of the ease with which something can become strange: how facile exaggerations can become abnormal, or how trivial manipulations or replications can evolve into something unfamiliar. She explores this theme primarily through the creation of two-dimensional prints as well as sculptural works that simultaneously probe the idea of delicate perversion of commonplace aesthetics.
