MONSTERS by Jennifer Stelco at 4 Walls

A lot of Dubai Drama Group members were promoting it on their feeds, which is how it came to my attention. MONSTERS by local expressionist Jennifer Stelco is exhibiting at 4 Walls Art Gallery in Al Quoz (a little difficult to find, but a really nice space). Stelco uses a palette of bright and earthy colors, with material layering in some places, and thick daubs of paint that result in a rich, lumpy topography. A number of them feature Indian motifs like topknots, multiple heads and arms, and dramatic Nataraja-like poses. Some paintings are more chaotic, with small irregular shapes in many colors fitting into each other. Others are cleaner - mostly the ones I personally liked.
