In the Green Street Gallery exhibition: "SOLO", Jamaica Plain artist Joe Wardwell presents the culmination of 5 years of work creating amazing hybrids of the music he grew up with and his favorite paintings from classical art history. The show is Wardwell’s first solo exhibition in Boston and features his most ambitious work to date: two, huge "altarpieces" which depict a pantheon of his music idols. Both of these six foot by five foot oil on canvas works place members of famous Rock 'n' roll and Heavy Metal bands, roadies lifting stacks of Marshall amps and nude groupies against a glowing, romantically clouded sky from a study by the Italian Baroque painter Giambattista Tiepolo. The poses of the loosely painted figures are borrowed from vintage album covers and seamlessly incorporated into a “super-group grouping” spiraling into the clouds.

Green Street roof installation by Lina Maria Giraldo
digital prints attached to glass
Giraldo creates environments that remind viewers of the complexities of the "drug war" which devastates the ecology of her home in Colombia. The artist uses the beauty of the poppie flower installed in windows which also harbor menacing crop dusting planes which swoop and fly above them. By placing these images against the sky seen in the background Giraldo crreates a feeling that the planes are above us, at this moment, making these distant political, economic and environmental struggles more visible to people in the U.S. --James Hull, Curator
