“Ever since childhood I knew I wanted to be an artist, but my earliest plans were to be a children’s book illustrator. That changed in college when I discovered oil painting and the work of Willem de Kooning and Philip Guston, among many others. That’s when I knew I would be an abstract painter, and I never looked back. Over the years, through graduate school and beyond, my mediums have changed from printmaking (etching and monoprints), to drawing, collage and works on paper, and from using acrylic to finally, a circular journey back to oil paint. My forms have fluctuated as well, going from organic and gestural to more geometric over the years. I expect that more spontaneous mark marking likely will find its way back in at some point.”

Maybe the apocalypse won’t come quickly with a mushroom cloud and an earth-shaking boom. Instead maybe it will happen slowly and incrementally, killing the weakest inhabitants of the world first, like the deer, dying in the forest, puddles of their blood pooling all around them in Atlanta artist Sarah Emerson’s drawing “Fallen Deer.”

Art Review: (Un)Sacred Geometries: Pete Schulte’s “The Lamplighter” at Whitespace

Pete Schulte’s “The Lamplighter” is a shockingly diverse exhibition that, at a casual glance, appears to be anything but. Even though it fills the three separate venues of the whitespace/whitespec/shedspace complex and includes a sound art installation, the dominant medium is graphite on paper, and the dominant style is geometric.

One of the large-scale wall drawings in Sarah Emerson’s exhibition “Are We the Monsters”—on view at Kennesaw State University’s Zuckerman Museum of Art through July 1—appears to be the Atlanta artist’s response to the gendered phrase the “mother of all bombs,” which was used to describe a large-yield explosive deployed for the first time by the US military in Afghanistan last spring.

Nancy Floyd’s daily photographic self-portraits over 35 years situate the artist in her home or work environment, delivering more piquant period flavor. The sections of the project mounted here like giant proof sheets take us from fake wood paneling to a bank of computers, from a young woman with long hair and bangs to a mature adult in a Black Lives Matter T-shirt.
