it's kinda like that

Ivester Contemporary is excited to announce a solo exhibition featuring new work by Fort Worth-based artist Rachel Livedalen. it’s kinda like that, weaves the joy, color, and design of 90’s Girl Power with images and text pulled directly from Art History textbooks. Livedalen playfully challenges the hierarchy of the Arts by translating techniques associated with femininity and craft into the traditionally respected medium of paint on canvas. Scattered compositions of cutouts, stickers, and bright colorful shapes derived from makeup palettes and watercolor sets obscure black and white reproductions of Greco-Roman busts and descriptive lines of text. Her free-spirited approach to art making, paired with the exhibition’s title, declares that all media and any subject matter can convey valuable ideas.
