“Old Is New”

space125gallery is bringing the past back with style

Three artists have mined the past to create something distinctly modern for space125gallery’s “Old Is New.”Anthony Thompson Shumate’s Shell Final uses the age-old art of stained glass to show a Shell Oil sign towering over trees. Catherine Colangelo’s paintings mimic the look of illustrations on medieval manuscripts; in one untitled piece, four large circles intersect, creating a mishmash of turquoise, gold, red, gray and black. Robbie Austin’s Golden Bliss, made with reassembled yearbooks, depicts the silhouette of a hand-holding couple standing atop a rainbow and a green heart, among other doodles. This is definitely much better than the “Sorry, I wrote up your crack” messages in our books.
