The Commute

"Something for the Commute", a three-person show at brookyn fire proof, includes the work of Karla Wozniak (and Ethan Greenbaum and S.E. Nash). (Until Jan 13 2008).

The image above, Latitudes, Panama City Beach, FL, is a iconic American landscape, the kind Wozniak typically presents us with. Void of irony or malice, her work feels both optimistic and loving, as she caresses this American Utopia with her line.

Interest in signage, especially quirky, vintage americana. Interest in the fraternity that franchised signage brings to divergent landscapes. These paintings and works on paper remind me of riding in the car of my childhood, surburban signage passing above, comforting with its mysterious promises.
