HallSpace presents Open Season with work by Doug Bell, Marlon Forrester, Gerry Perrino, and Marisa Sciabarrasi.
This is the season of political discourse where immigration, race, war, peace, religion, oil, money, and an endless list of other personal interests are enthusiastically discussed and debated.
Marisa Sciabarrasi has been photographing street vendors, bodega workers, veterans, and others working for low wages in search of the American dream. Doug Bell reflects
on the toll war and corporate greed has on humanity by repurposing antiquities and lost collections. Gerry Perrino paints still lifes of small toy soldiers/figures and other objects to create narratives, commentary on war, human relationships, and the destructive repetitiveness of human nature. Marlon Forrester's photographic collages are direct commentary on the body, the black male body, and how historical and corporate interests have manipulated or crafted their identities.
Marisa Sciabarrasi, currently working in Los Angeles, CA has an MFA from CalArts.
Doug Bell, lives in Andover, MA, he has an MFA from The Maryland Institute, College of Art, and teaches painting at Montserrat College of Art. Gerry Perrino lives in Rhode Island and teaches at Salve Regina University, he received his MFA from Syracuse University. Marlon Forrestor lives in Dorchester, MA and teaches in the Boston School Department, MFA Yale University.
