Steve Sweetser - Portfolio

Review - Burt Manaster Blog

I went to see Dr. Sweetser's Frida Kahlo series exhibit at the Edge of Frame Gallery yesterday around 5:30 P.M.
I had received a card in the mail inviting me to the reception where Steve's series was announced  as his guest artist contribution.
I must say I was pretty impressed. He certainly understood that Frida's face is as ubiquitous in art as a recurring nightmare (my words - not his). but his representation of several permutations of Frida along Warhohlian lines was truly arresting and unique. There were four representations all nicely framed to choose from, and all contained aspects that could be construed to incorporate Frida as artist and as subject matter for interpretation by an artist. (Steve in this case.)  In that aspect Steve seemed to have achieved the goal of communicating Frida as an icon and providing us with a commentary drawn upon our own observation or subliminal responses that he opened up for us.
I will look forward to seeing more aspects of Steve's imagination in future .
