For The Record: “Break Ups & Tear Downs” reviewed by Las Vegas Weekly

Break Up & Tear Down

Paper collage fragmenting women into mythical form, inebriated co-eds in the shades of coloring books, and demonstrated draughtsmanship rendering sinkholes. Those are some of Dawn-Michelle Baude’s  observations in her review of  Kveck, Russ & Stellmon: Break Ups & Tear Downs. She opens her LasVegas Weekly prose thusly:

Break Ups and Tear Downs at the Barrick Museum presents Las Vegas artists Wendy Kveck and JK Russ, along with former Las Vegan Erin Stellmon, who recently left for the East Coast. Deconstruction is key to the exhibition: All three artists process visual representations by cutting them up. But the “break up” and “tear down” title omits that the artists also reassemble the fragments, generating fresh, new ways of looking at familiar content.

Kveck, Russ & Stellmon: Break Ups & Tear Downs runs through January 23 at UNLV’s Majorie Barrick Museum.
