Lori Field & Johan Hagaman 

When: Sept. 8-Oct. 13 2012
Lori Field incorporates colored-pencil drawings, antique lace, foil, sequins and scarves into her encaustic paintings — vivid pastel narratives that cast chimeric creatures in fantastic settings. Field’s exhibition borrows its title, I Am Curious Yellow, from the controversial 1967 Swedish coming-of-age film that triggered a landmark U.S. obscenity trial. Here, she turns female adolescence itself inside out, revealing a psycho-emotional space characterized by intensity and wild possibility (but not a distracting overabundance of the color yellow). Johan Hagaman’s sculptures complement Field’s work nicely. In her exhibit, Air in Autumn, the artist combines birdcages, spoons, jars and bowls to create her surreal female figures. Hagaman then places her heroines in mysterious settings meant to evoke suspended “moments of psychological poignancy.”
