WHO: Ester Partegas
WHAT: "Less World"
WHEN: September 11 - October 30, 2010
WHERE: Christopher Grimes Gallery
916 Colorado Ave.
Santa Monica, CA 90401
WHY: Touching on the effect that imagery, advertisements, billboards, and consumerism have on our daily lives, Ester Partegas' exhibit "Less World" at Christopher Grimes Gallery is filled with broken collages and torn images. The artist only lets you see so much of what the original image or ad must have been, which reflects how "bombarded" we are in our everyday. "Working over a diverse array of media, Partegàs imparts a dark wit and didacticism in choosing which medium best conveys the criticisms she wishes to bring to light."
