FEEL Extended, Adding Talk March 19th in San Fran

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

Reaction to my show FEEL in San Fran was so great that Mark Wolfe Contemporary Art has extended the show and I am heading there on Tuesday, March 19th for an artist talk. The exhibition showcases my mixed media and epoxy resin paintings all centering on a single subject: Augustine, the documented patient of neurologist Professor Jean-Martin Charcot at the notorious Salpêtrière Hospital in Paris. Institutionalized for hysteria in the 1870s, the young woman was, for many years, the subject of experimental treatments and lengthy photographic documentation of her episodic outbursts. After several years of incarceration, Augustine disguised herself as a man and escaped the psychiatric ward, never to be seen again.
