Brooklyn, New York, Ch’i Contemporary Fine Art is proud to present Attitudes of Magnitude, Carri Skoczek’s second solo show at Ch’i Contemporary Fine Art. Join us on Friday, January 9th from 6 – 9 PM for a public reception with the artist at the gallery’s Williamsburg location of 293 Grand Street between Roebling and Havemeyer.
Attitudes of Magnitude features portraiture in the form of paintings and linocuts. Using her signature style of pressed powdered paints, Skoczek’s “Babes” as she calls them are chock full of panache in their iridescent splendor. With their transfixing gazes, these women stand strong adorned by the threads they wear, yet recalled by the attitude they emanate. Juxtaposed with these fashionistas are a series of linocuts where the artist pays homage to the powerful matriarchs of the art world including Louise Bourgeois, Louise Nevelson, Frida Kahlo, Georgia O’Keefe, and Pat Oleszko. Attitudes and Magnitude contrasts the anonymity of these young brazen female figures with the identifiable clout of these established personas tying them together with the commanding presence each one resonates.
