Carol John: I Want Candy
November 5 to December 10
opening reception: Saturday, November 5 at 6pm
Poem 88 presents a mini-retrospective of works by Georgia artist Carol John, I Want Candy. Titled after the Bow Wow Wow song, Johnís work consistently incorporates youthful exuberance, punk rock volume and F-U-N. Novel compositions are infused with a playful, candy-colored, Pop sensibility. Eyes and lips, combs and zippers, polka dots and ice cream cones, John's visual delights never disappoint. Fresh off a solo show in New York, this is John's second solo show at Poem 88.
A graduate of the School of the Visual Arts, John's work appears in many prominent public and private collections including The High Museum of Art.
This exhibition marks the six-year anniversary of Poem 88. We are very grateful for the support of our patrons and very proud of the artists whose work we've presented in over forty exhibitions in addition to film screenings, literary readings, musical performances and community gatherings.
