"Georgeanne Deen: 1992-2002"
2002-02-16 until 2002-03-17
McKinney Avenue Contemporary
Dallas, TX, USA United States of America

Los Angeles artist Georgeanne Deen will present 27 paintings executed over the past decade in an exhibition entitled: Georganne Deen 1992-2002. Deen's exquisite paintings are psychodramas loaded with splendor and turmoil. She has developed an intensely personal style by juxtaposing the seductive trappings of fashion marketing with words and images plucked from the disparate worlds of rock-and-roll, perfume ads, new age anything, beat poetry, and nursery rhymes.

The result is a peep show into a fierce and fragile comedy of the human psyche that many of us would be loathe to lay open. Past series from which she will be showing key works are The Mother Load, The Vogue Book of the Dead, Un Fuc Me (and let me live again), Thru The Super Mirror, and The Secret Storm.

Deen was born in Fort Worth in 1951 and attended East Texas State University. This exhibition will be her debut in Texas. She lived in New York from 1975 to 1980 before moving to Los Angeles to attend the California Institute of the Arts in Valencia, and she has lived in LA for the past 20 years. She has shown her work at the Waikato Museum of Art, New Zealand; the San Diego Museum of Art, La Jolla; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Boulder; Entwistle, London; Joseph Helman Gallery, New York; Exit Art, New York; Museum de Fortuny, Venice; Christopher Grimes Gallery, Los Angeles; and others.

Running concurrently with Deen's exhibition at The MAC is an exhibition titled I Gave It All Away For Love at The Barry Whistler Gallery, which features Deen‚s new three-dimensional works inspired by the music of P J Harvey, Nick Cave, Portishead, Cat Power, and others. For details about this exhibition, call (214) 939-0242.

The McKinney Avenue Contemporary (The MAC) offers opportunities for experimentation and for the presentation of art in all disciplines, and provides a forum for critical dialogue between emerging and established artists and their audiences. The MAC supports the artist‚s role in society, cultivates that relationship through education and innovative programming, and stands as an advocate for creative freedom. The MAC has been operated by Dallas Artist Research and Exhibition, Inc., a non-profit arts organization, since October 1994. The MAC is a member of Dallas Art Dealers Association.
