The Cupid’s Clearasil group exhibition at Portland’s Country Bumpkin ran from August 6 to September 29, 2016.
An accompanying text goes as follows:
“Imagine Cupid growing up and getting pimples, along with all of the anxiety and identity dysphoria associated with that. A slug imagines itself and it becomes. Through a variety of drawing and sculpture, the works present the imaginings and becomings promised in the liminal.
With a range of materials from found objects, ceramics, textiles, and epoxy resin to mixed media drawing, Country Bumpkin exploits the rawness of the unfinished basement as a meditation on liminality. Works in the space coalesce around the ever evolving landscape of crumbling cement and darkness.”**
