Dream, Inc.: Awakening from the American Dream

RICHARD SPEER
Friday January 11
Cock Gallery
625 NW Everett St., No. 106
 
Munich-born artist and writer Richard Schemmerer takes on the American Dream in Dream, Inc., an exhibition of paintings, sculpture, and mixed-media work. In addition to a suite of abstract paintings, Schemmerer offers a series depicting enigmatic faces, which confront the viewer with a kind of unsettling mirror. The exhibition's most compelling work is a sculpture entitled Wings of Desire, made from wrought iron, a metal spring, driftwood and red feathers. With intimations of the Icarus legend, the piece seems to portray a nation that has risen from its folksy, pioneer past (symbolized by the gnarled wood) and industrial might (the metalwork), only to flame out in a wash of decadence (the red wings): a cheap feather boa where a bald eagle once soared. Closes Feb. 2.
