The Mother Lode

Michael Bise tells his mom's stories in dark drawings at Moody Gallery.

All the work in the show has you looking for clues. The satisfying formal qualities of Bise's work can get lost in the often provocative imagery, and seeing it as stemming from what the artist sees as the memories and point of view of his mother makes you want to know the stories behind the scene. But Bise's family dynamics aren't the point. These images exist independently of their source material. Bise's work is evolving in a very interesting, but risky, way.
