Resident Guest #3 - Quiet Desire

Quiet Desire is a new suite of works by Cali Thornhill Dewitt (CTW) and Misha Hollenbach (MH). Showing in Plusdesign Gallery the works mimic interior design, transcending the term objet d’art, a table becomes sculpture and viceversa, mirrors become paintings and viceversa. The power of words combined with gestural abstract paintings make for pieces which echo a combination of Abstract Expressionism and the works of Barbara Kruger. Strong text poetry, and with graphic gestural mark making, they are then contained and applied via screen print onto large mirrors resulting in striking works. As the viewer see themselves in their own reflection, they are compelled to make sense of the visual and the language, and therefore question the relevance to themselves. 

Are the words for them specifically? There they stand in forced to see themselves in their own Urgent Body. Can they ignore their own Quiet Desires? Are they their own Quiet Desire? Is it OK to see yourself as yourself? You see yourself in the work, but do you belong? Is it OK to be there? There is a degree of Mutual Consent when looking at oneself. Cali and Misha want you to look at yourself. And they want you to look great! Ultimately the works act as functional pieces, but not without questions.
