A big thank you to everyone who visited our exhibition “Jim Riswold: Undignified,” which closed on Sunday!
*
Another thank you to @artslandia who provided Lisa M. Thomas and Guerry Dean with free tickets to visit (@saffysage pictured here).
*
And a third, special thank you to Guerry, who wrote the wonderful review included below:
*
“Laughing out loud. Not what I expected to do when viewing Jim Riswold’s exhibit “Undignified” about humanity’s most notorious despots and villains as well as the horrors of World War I. -
But I did laugh. More than once. In fact that is Riswold’s intent. A cancer survivor, Riswold found strength and salvation in the power of ridicule and humor when faced with a life-threatening cancer diagnosis. Rather than shrinking from the terror of it, he defied it with dark humor. His scathing wit and innovative depictions of life’s other enemies became his weapon of choice.
_
Hitler in a dress, Lenin in a party hat, Mao Tse Tung as a throw rug are images that transform terrifying figures into ridiculous buffoons. Riswold deflates their power and imminence with stabs of humor, sprinkled with grim accounts of their crimes. Entertaining, enlightening and instructive. This exhibit is not for everyone, but it deserves the attention of anyone who supports freedom, human dignity and opposes needless cruelty and ruthless oppression." - Guerry Dean
