“Out Of This World”

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower, Main Gallery, 21 S. Eutaw Street

Saturdays, February 25, 2017 - July 1, 2017, 11am-4pm

Each lithograph, screen print, or intaglio print in Out Of This World depicts a powerful woman--often a comedienne or an actress--moving amongst an inhospitable landscape. Chris Mona’s prints are equal parts thoughtful research and feral disregard. He investigates the elasticity of time, as figures marked by their era--Colonial Virginia to Powerhouse 1980’s--are transported to settings in other trajectories of time and space--deep-time Earth to sulfuric Venus. In one print, swinging 60s model Peggy Moffitt dances in a billowing couture dress on a comet nucleus recently visited by a European space probe; in another, actress Miranda Hart lounges in a Devonian Era landscape populated by earth’s first land plants.
