Laura Bell and Ian Ganassi: The Corpses
Laura Bell and Ian Ganassi
Sort Of, 17 x 9 in., 2021, Plastic flowers, packaging material, musical score, cut paper, Warhol cutout, children’s-book cutout, broken china, needles, and laminated sign; "Created after the worst of the Covid lockdown, plastic daisies from a broken hummingbird feeder, brightly colored collage materials, and a swatch of needles affirm in a dangling worse-for-wear sign, 'I’m OK.''
Shooting the Pie, 2021, 11.5 x 9 in., Found objects, elastic ribbon, cardboard cutout on paper towel on cardboard; "A found object that could be a children’s bubble blower but feels here more like a hypodermic needle is joined by a cherry pie diner-ad cutout and plastic utensils on a coffee-stained paper towel."
No Worries, 2022, Acrylic, found objects, text, and collage on paper, 11 x 9 in.; "A found origami bird flies over a mountain of laser print cutouts of photos taken at the NY Botanical Gardens, scattered with keys from a discarded computer keyboard and the text 'There Is No Threat.'”
For almost two decades and ongoing, painter Laura Bell and poet Ian Ganassi have been mailing between them the collaborative collage/assemblage series "The Corpses," a title derived from the Surrealist game of Exquisite Corpse.
