Cold Comfort


August 8 - September 19, 2015

Beep Beep Gallery is proud to present “Cold Comfort,” a solo exhibition by Atlanta based artist MARCY STARZ. In this entirely new body of work, Starz explores themes of contention in relationships using figures both human and animal to convey situations of intensity and withdrawal. Utilizing oil paint on floral, thrift-store bought bed sheets, Starz balances the pre-made patterns with her figurative style of painting. Her subjects appear in various states of aggression as well as transparency, offering glimpses into fluctuating situations of conflict whether direct or passive. While some pieces appear kinetic and visceral, showing immediate and unsettling struggles, others produce a sense of stillness and vacancy like silhouettes fading into the background and out of harm’s way.
