La Petite Mort

Melissa Wilkinson

Threesquared is excited to present recent works from Melissa Wilkinson, Assistant Professor of Art at Arkansas State University. In this new series of watercolor paintings, Wilkinson confronts the image of the body, and expose its inherent contradiction as a passive object of desire in both traditional representation and contemporary painting. These works incorporate appropriated imagery from art history, subjects suggestive of consumption and wealth, and are deconstructed to recontextualize and agitate. Here, Wilkinson seeks to create a new narrative using an old. 


The opening party will be held Thursday, September 25th from 6-9 pm. The show will be on display through October 4th during the Arts and Music @ Wedgewood-Houston art crawl.
