“Flirting with the surreal in Hawthorn Contemporary’s”
“Where the Eyes Fail”
Visual arts critique by Shane McAdams
Chance encounters with the objective visible universe, and the moments it misses, unifies the works of Daniel McCullough and Maeve Jackson in a two-person photographic exhibition. Jackson’s work focuses on portraiture, but just before or just after the person has gotten ready to pose. Small photograph entitled Mermaid captures a woman treading water in a costume struggling to locate buoyancy. Daniel McCullough’s untitled piece featuring two human hands covered and butterflies is compositionally unusual: delicate and tender, but and its cinematic color and disembodied hands hint at something slightly sinister-somewhere between Kyle McLaughlin’s hands in Blue Velvet and Johnny Depp’s in Edward Scissorhands.
Looks like coverage on local issues in the news. Good art critical pieces.

“Look Inside Sheboygan’s New Art Preserve”
By Lindsay Anderson Rios
Investigation into the Sheboygan facility honoring the legacy of Ruth DeYoung Kohler, who died in November at age 79. John Michael Kohler Arts Center was run by Ruth DeYoung Kohler directed the institution for more than 40 years. She promoted artists who created works that they lived in. The collection that she is put together focuses on vernacular art some might call it outsider art. One of the installations is a full-size tavern built by Fred Smith. Fred lived in Phillips, Wisconsin in the 50s and built the bar and ran it. Fred liked to do his own version of folk art that he installed in the bar. This is just one example of Ruth’s interests. She collected from people who transformed their own homes or possessions or environments into “idiosyncratic works of art that they lived in or with.”

“Elizabeth Neel grew up painting with her famous grandmother.
Now, her new abstractions are getting attention in New York in London”
Alice Neel was a figurative painter who lived between January 28, 1900, and October 13, 1984. Her paintings were expressionist portraits with the use of line, color, shape, and form to place special focus on the psychology of the maker and the sitter. When her granddaughter was eight years old Alice gave her first set of oil paints, a Winsor & Newton paint box. Elizabeth and her grandmother had a close relationship, with her grandmother insisting on being called Alice instead of grandmother. Elizabeth Neal went to college for art at the School of the Museum of Fine Art in Boston. Lately, she has been working on developing two solo shows. “Arms Now Legs'' is currently at her New York gallery Salon 94; it can be seen between June 30 and August 27, 2021. “Limb After Limb” will be exhibited at Pilar Corrias in London; September 16 to October 23, 2021. You might describe Elizabeth Neel’s work as being abstract and expressionistic in nature with large portions of the bare canvas still exposed behind her bravado painting style. The brushwork traces the movement of her entire body working across the canvas.
