Anna Von Mertens and Julia Mangold
Features:Age: All Ages Price:
Von Mertens shifts from the quilt work that’s made her last year a particularly bright one (a solo exhibition at the Boston Center for Art and inclusion in the Smithsonian’s 40 Under 40: Craft Futures show) to vibrant, dyed fabric paintings of three sorts, the most intriguing being a series based off of the aura photographs of couples standing side by side. (Do we see an aura photo app being the new mood ring in the near future?)
Don’t think Mangold’s move from her velvety charcoal rectilinear sculptures to works on paper is a shift from three-dimensions to two. Her use of multiple layers of paper and grid arrangements of frames give these pigment and graphite explorations of rectangular shapes a marked depth.
