Elizabeth Shreve: Our Flesh and Blood
Elizabeth Shreve... Our Flesh and Blood: Being Unknown. From the exhibition Elizabeth Shreve: Our Flesh and Blood, September 8 through October 28, 2006 at Carl Hammer Gallery in Chicago, IL. "...Shreve’s sumptuously painted canvasses are really journeys which lay bare the introspective self, expressing a world that possesses her, filled with an awareness of the depth and complexity of the everyday engagement with life. Her vision is, in part, about a form of experiencing that feels and is open to a much broader range of human emotion; accepting pain, grief, and joy without the indulgences of judgment that limit not only our vulnerability, need, and fear but also our sense of realness."
