Just Between Us: New Drawings by Jackie Milad at Paperwork Gallery
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 15, from 7-9:30 p.m.
Exhibition: May 15 – June 24, 2008.
With a catalogue essay by Jack Livingston. Excerpt:
“An avid and lucid daydreamer Jackie Milad’s elegant line drawings document her ruminations. Thematically her work continually circles the twin afflictions of life—sex and death. First traced out in the artist’s restrained poetic quasi-Egyptian glyph style, her imagery often later blooms into real life psychological investigations and actions. And while her concerns are decidedly adult they feel intentionally filtered through the sensibilities of a precocious pansexual juvenile. The results are depictions of the awkward moment of the REAL. This makes her work simultaneously charming and unsettling.”
