KRISTEN MARTINCIC’s “DEEP END”
ON VIEW SEPTEMBER 27, 2019 – NOVEMBER 17, 2019
Wonder Fair Gallery celebrates its Grand Opening on Final Friday, September 27, 2019 with an exhibition of work by Kristen Martincic. Based in Columbia, Missouri, printmaker Martincic has been a friend to Wonder Fair for many years, making regular appearances at the biennial LAC Print Fair, and is often remembered for her popular 2013 exhibition Surface Tension at Wonder Fair. In this more recent group of work, Deep End, Martincic will show newer woodcut and hand-cut paper swimsuits, dimensional pool floats, and crystalline images of swimming pools-- their gently deepening ombre tones reassuring us that after 11 years, Wonder Fair is probably prepared to wade a bit farther into the deep end in pursuit of that impossibly complex relational dream: that somehow, “a rising tide lifts all boats”.
