Below are two additional mixed media pieces--Sex, Money, The Size and Price of Things--The American Way and Oh To Roam The Hills. The former is the lower photo and the latter the upper. Amongst the things used in these pieces are paper, wire, darts, a vintage tape measure, string tape, paint etc.
Every year at Art Week there are two or three (maybe four) new artists you find and this year, one of these artists was Iemmolo. She spoke about her work, Band-Aid House at Play, earlier. That installation and these pieces capture something like a vague memory of all of our pasts, our innocence but add to that a dose of realism that is like a slap (see the titles!).
All her work shown is whimsical and there is more to it than is on the surface. The care in the materials used--and that they match the intent of the piece-- shows an artist making the world fit their work, bringing the world into their work. The materials are part of the symbolism and integral to the point of these pieces.
These pieces were shown by Packer Schopf Gallery, Chicago.
