Artwork of the Week for June 1, 2009


Keltie Ferris
Super Friend (2008)
Medium: Oil, acrylic and sprayed paint on canvas

Ferris’ work is bold, gestural and urban. Some want to see masks, others numbers, still others maps in Ferris’ cacophonous paintings. Soft-edged forms blur against razor-sharp lines. Rigid geometry and artistic expression layer to create canvases that you just can’t take your eyes off. Her work is addictive, and for the New Yorker reminds us of too many morning-afters.

On June 24th, as part of a fundraising event for the Rema Hort Mann Foundation, Super Friend will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. The Rema Hort Mann Foundation is an incredible organization that both sponsors upcoming artists and ensures cancer patients have family with them during treatment. I encourage you to attend and view Ferris’ work along with 70 works by other artists dedicated to the Foundation’s dual mission.
