Artwork / 2006

In 2006, I did something that I hadn’t done in a few years: I participated in a couple of group shows. I poked fun at some curators with my contributions to the Portland Art Centers’ Boredom: I Learned It By Watching You, and I explored my relationship with my partner in Scott Wayne Indiana’s inCLOVER.

That second theme was on my mind in 2006. By the time inCLOVER opened, I had already made my sweetheart the accidental focus of my conceptual series, Mutually Beneficial.

“[Gwenn] works in a brushy, gestural style, exposing the anatomical structure beneath the skin, which seems to reveal a layer of vulnerability and truth.”
