Kristen Thiele: Smoke and Mirrors
Jan. 25 – March 14, 2014
Opening Reception: Fri., Jan. 24, 6 – 9 pm
Thiele’s imagery is derived from the motion pictures of the 1930s through the 50s. She is particularly interested in how this era of film aligns with the concept of artifice via opulent and escapist themes. The subjects of Thiele’s paintings are about the fleeting, the missing, and the unattainable; however as paintings they become the very antithesis of the ephemeral.
