Michelle Guintu - Walking Home


 

MICHELLE GUINTU

WALKING HOME

14 Dec 2013 to 01 Feb 2014

 

 
 
 
 
 

New Image Art is pleased to announce San Francisco artist, Michelle Guintu’s first solo exhibition, “Walking Home”, opening December 14th, 2013, 7pm-10pm. The exhibition will showcase her impulse to create through her personal experience and obsession with popular culture.

When asked “what kind of art do you do” Guintu jumbles her words and things get awkward. Maybe because she plays with a little of everything, from sewing cigarettes together, to McDonald’s paper mache dolls, to her most recent tempera paintings of hip hop artists. Her work was once described as “kindercore” : part kindergarten part hardcore. Guintu uses references from her teenage years in a somewhat low-budget assemblage of sorts. Guintu installations takes on a funky satirical quality—embracing the past in a nostalgic reverence while making fun of pop culture.
