“Norman Rockwell, she ain’t,” says CP contributor Dan Conover. That’s because Norman Rockwell wouldn’t create a headless horse sculpture. Sure, Andrea Stanislav’s horse is covered in mirrors, making it seem happier and less savage (shiny things somehow seem to make everything less scary), but it’s a far way off from the tranquil schoolhouse images of good ol’ Norm. Stanislav uses reflective surfaces in a lot of her work — it compels people to reflect on their condition. Stanislav’s 18-piece exhibit questions popular culture to create unexpected reactions from viewers. “Generally people are absolutely in love with it. There’s the glitter, the over the top,” says Stacy Huggins, executive director of Redux. “It’s been particularly well-received by younger people.” Stanislav has had solo exhibitions all over the world from Dublin to Minneapolis, and her work has been shown in places like Sweden, Kuwait, and California. Join the artist and view the videos, scultpures, and installations one last time before the deinstallation process begins on July 6.
