Arts and Crafts: Arms Out
Filed under: Arts and Crafts | Posted by:

Merry Karnowsky Gallery in Los Angeles will be presenting Arms Out, a new show by Echo Park based artist Mel Kadel, from February 5th through March 5th.  Mel uses stained papers, .005 pens, hand-mixed washes and blades to create images of women overcoming peril in all sorts of situations. She hand cuts thick layers of paper and collages them to make her work both delicate and dimensional, her patterned pieces form landscapes that are at times surreal, tears forming oceans, and women turned into patchwork quilts.

Ian MacKaye of Minor Threat says of Kadel’s work, “Mel goes so hard on her work it’s a wonder she hasn’t fallen in. Actually, I think if you look close enough you’ll see a piece of her in every picture. No joke.” The opening reception, which is open to the public, will be on Saturday, February 5 from 8–11pm. Check out more of her work after the jump.
