Heaven/Hell, Yin/Yang, masculine/feminine, positive/negative, light/dark, split identities, God/Devil, fire/ice, earth/water, love/hate, young/old, and following the ancient axiom: “As Above So Shall It Be Below,” Primal Disposition II: Dual Dilemma seeks to showcase works of art that deal with the concept of Duality that are are raw, dark, religious, emotive, primitive, earthen, sexual, sensory, confrontational, instinctual. We are also looking for work that is primal in the materials used: foundational, basic, primary, elemental, and/or not of this world…

We accept works from emerging, mid-career, and/or professional artists. Work should somehow relate to the theme of the show.

Elaine M. Erne, co-founder and co-director of Star Wheel Printers, received her BFA from Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA and her MFA from Tyler School of Art, Temple University in Philadelphia, PA.  Erne’s drawings and prints have been featured in numerous invitational and juried national exhibitions. The Lives and Traumas of Stuffed Animals is a series of comically disturbing depictions of Mr. Bunny and his friends under siege. The series is made up of very large graphite pencil drawings, woodblocks, etchings, and lithographs. Although there is a playful side, the underlining theme is fear, cruelty, and survival.  In recurring distressful situations people often become like dolls, presenting a steady happy personae no matter what is happening.  Though the circumstances represented in the work are not real, no stuffed animals were hurt in the making of the work, they capture the aura that surrounds a person who has no control but will not give in.
