Well, the title of this exhibition couldn’t be more timely. MaLynda Poulson’s new paintings focus on loss and grief. Her animal stand-ins are in trouble. For a certain segment of the American population, we certainly understand her turmoil. Poulsen said, “An interesting transition that took place in this series was my own shift from the role of princess to what? Evil witch? Are those my only two choices in this paradigm? So not only do I lose everything, but I become a bitter evil witch?” I predict there will be a slew of anti-Trump art soon. While this series was not painted because of the election, let’s put Poulsen at the front of the line.
