SCENE Metrospace presents an exhibition entitled Cir*cus/Car*ni*val opening November 18 running through January 8, 2006. This themed show will include a room of mosaic carousels, a circus parade, trapeze and freak show barker and ticket-taker, all mosaic and miniature of course by Ellen Stern. There will be huge paintings, films, photos, by Melanie Heinrich, Amanda Miller, other artists. It will have many rooms of things going on all at once: about carnivals and the "freaks" and rides and people who operate them.
Stern sates about her work, "I play God(dess), attributing characteristics to my medium and by being consistent within one piece, I aim to convince the audience of their validity.
In some instances, I find, recreate, and reinforce the parallels between mosaic tile work and fiber work. I believe that pointillism began with the weaving of plaid, in which a warp and a weft of 2 different colors crossed each other and played a trick on our eyes, becoming yet a third color. This happened long ago in history, and the Pointillists, such as Seurat, were making use of this principle."
