“Old Is New”

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.
