Dotty Attie- Words of Wisdom

Art in America Article

"The works in this show are structured around a single statement that undergoes surprising and subtle changes in meaning as it is recontextualized in different sets of images."

Creating variations on a single theme, Attie encourages us to rethink the whole gamut of social relationships. In case after case, “resistance and refusal” clearly only mean consent from the perspective of the one who wields the power.

–Eleanor Heartney

Reading the first panel and then by the time you read the second, it's already changed the context. 

It's sometimes nice to include words with paintings, it creates more depth.
