A new show is up at The Beat coffee house today. I watched the artist, Annette Hartman, install and took a closer look. Many of the pieces are text oriented and very graphic, though sensitive and lovely. I enjoy her use of color and that each piece has something attractive and unique about it, while still dialogging with the others around it.
Much of the photos seem to focus on text in pre-existing environments, while other examples seem to be extracted from unknown sources. The justaposition works well, and the installation of each piece from a wire hanging at different levels on the wall creates an interesting conversation.
