Art @ Penrose: Dots Front Misfire
Research and post by Philip Stefani
Dots Front Misfire - Gina Osterloh – 3rd floor across from staff elevator
This print of a photograph captures a scene in a 2011 installation in the Sheehan Gallery. Gina Osterloh’s larger installation project was titled Cut Room. The installation’s accompanying photographs depict the room seen in this photo with vibrant streamers on all surfaces, and the same sculpture in the center, as well as other similar papier-mâché figures. Osterloh’s Cut Room installation follows her Rash Room and Blank Attempts installations in a series titled Shooting Blanks; the installations have shown in the United States and the Philippines. Much of Osterloh’s work explores environments saturated in vibrant colors with particular focus on textured surfaces.
