Kali of Whose Blessing This is a Manifestation & Another Step Forward, Walking Backward

Nov. 20th - Jan. 10th 2005

curated by Eleanor Harwood

Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough transforms the backroom creating a narrative of primordial mythology. In the backroom: Kali, who symobolizes both a mother goddess and destruction, snakes, roots and tiny creatures come together to create and destroy the world.

All of Mary Elizabeth Yarbrough’s paintings are made of duct tape and contact paper. Her media are pliable, alterable, immediate and ephemeral, much like her subject matter. Her imagery is culled from sources such as the popular media, folklore, wartime propaganda, conspiracy theories, secret societies, outdated technology, events pointing to eminent disaster, and phenomena. A viewer may enter into her paintings on a superficial or surface level and interpret them as an ode to pop art or pop culture. However her work often touches on deeper issues and frequently points to darker evidence than we want to notice.

THE END, and the loss which usually accompanies THE END, is a consistently timely theme- though we must admit, that to lose is also to gain.
