A show originally conceived of last year as a set of eight paintings, that then became four
paintings…a show originally set for April, that then became September.
The last show I did was three years ago, and was about the life and death cycle, as well
peripherally, about the news cycle. After the life and death cycle, it seemed a natural transition into a rest and healing interlude, a period of convalescence. Initially an investigation into
wellness, spas, and sanitariums, the focus then moved to one object that would stand-in for that research. This object, the rib-cage shower, interpreted four times, is a relic of treatment, hygiene, and rejuvenation. It also looks like it’s name…a rib-cage, a cage.
Queer Thoughts is honored to present Convalescence, a solo exhibition of new work by Megan Marrin. This is the artist’s first exhibition with the gallery. Megan Marrin lives and works in New York City.
