Miller Gallery’s first exhibition of the 2021 is a contemporary art-lover’s dream. Two all star artists, Angela Chrusciaki Blehm and Suzy Lindow of Wink Wink studio will be showcased in Modern Anatomy.
Angela Chrusciaki (kroo-sha-kee) Blehm is “obsessed with offbeat beauty”. She has been dishing out her fierce femme style to Miller Gallery patrons since 2018. With numerous sold out shows in her pocket, Blehm will be expanding upon her portfolio of bright, layered woodcuts; this time with the whole body in mind. Her iconic artwork of striped ribbons, lips, and legs will be appearing in a fresh light.
Blehm is thrilled to team up with Suzy Lindow for Modern Anatomy, stating, “Suzy’s use of pattern and interesting color combinations really rev up my engine! I communicate through visual patterns and the joy of color, so it is like finding someone in a foreign land who speaks my language—a sense of camaraderie and true understanding. While I think there is a mutual affinity for these art aspects between us, she further motivates me to communicate through her command of line and gesture, her ability to convey ideas and emotions through deconstructed norms.”
Lindow is best known on social media as Wink Wink studio. She is a mother of three active kiddos and a full-time artist, based out of Virginia. This will be her second time exhibiting at Miller Gallery, with her debut as a guest artist in October 2020’s Into The Mystic exhibition. Her paintings can be narrowed down to two general subject matters: “Peeps and Weird”.
While the ambiguity of the two descriptions may raise a few eyebrows, one look at her portfolio and you’ll get it. Lindow explains, “This current body of work is by far the most literal translation of all the bits and bobs of inspiration I've mentally catalogued over time. I have an eBay watch list as long as a Walgreens receipt; regularly trolling handmade rugs, textiles, and other vintage tchotchke goodies has always put gas in my creative tank. These [new] pieces convey specific patterns, shapes, compositions, and color combos that got especially stuck in my mind.” Modern Anatomy will include her peeps (faces) and beyond.
Digital and in-person guests of this exhibition will be pleased to see the collective sexiness of these two artists’ styles in one space.
A gallery opening is scheduled for February 13 from 1-4pm.
