Curator Review: Grackle
Settled against a dark gray background of mottled paint and paper, a whimsical story unfolds in ‘Grackle’. Minardi’s delicate brushstrokes, sprinkled details and illustrative symbolism is both intimate and affecting. From the merging portrait of the painter, to the blended shadows of the eggs and birds, a visual fusing and method of birth and release is being communicated here. This bold perspective and transfixing piece generously prevails in extending a private peek into the method of the singular artist Margaret Minardi.
