The SPRING/BREAK Art Show took place in Los Angeles from February 16th to February 20, 2022.
The theme of this year’s show was “HEARSAY/HERESY”, drawing parallels between our own turbulent times and the creative chaos of the Middle Ages.
Curated by Fashion Moda West, we find an installation of paintings and sculptures by Brooke McGowen. Portraits on gold ground evoke icons but flowing paint adds an unexpected dimension. A group of larger paintings depict the misadventures of a lusty Rooster King. Also on view, a collection of glazed ceramic skulls, created by the artist in 2006 in response to the Iraq war
