Michael Gellatly at Laundromat Art Space

Michael Gellatly at Laundromat Art SpaceSaturday, September 2, 7pm-10pm – Laundromat Art Space, 5900 NE 2nd Ave, Miami

Miami based artist Michael Gellatly will assemble a large group of photographs, a few paintings, and a number of drawings. His characters make poetically odd connections during these bizarre times. In Gellatly’s hybridizing method of depiction, he constructs surreal stand-ins for aspects of humanity using embellished, outfitted gourds. His once darkly erotic creatures have been exhumed from the depths of their indulgences, and in a mixed-metaphor move, he positions them among flotillas of icebergs, at once becoming future refugees. The gourds’ earlier personas, now alongside this new bellwether for global warming and sea level rise, expose their beauty and vulnerabilities within this threat.
