martincic & pintz

saw the kristen martincic & joseph pintz exhibition @ turman larison contemporary in helena, mt on fri. i am always moved by kristen's work. here is an exert from her artist statement about it: "I push the boundaries of privacy and expose vulnerability by examining what typically lies hidden beneath the surface.  In my prints, sculpture, and installations, garments become a surrogate for the human form, hovering between skin and clothing, intimacy and exposure.  My artwork uses subtle hints of awkwardness and longing to communicate the honesty and beauty of everyday moments, and to make the viewer keenly aware of their own sense of self."
