‘PROJECT 11: 
this, this is for you’

At first, when I entered “PROJECT 11: this, this is for you,” I was overwhelmed with sadness. On every wall was a reminder of the late artist Stephen Irwin, who passed away in 2010. But as I toured the gallery, my sadness was replaced with delight as I was reintroduced to this master of creative manipulation. The true standouts of his work are the pieces where he used Brillo pads to remove the most sexualized parts of vintage porno magazines, leaving only a sea of whiteness and the imagination to decipher the acts portrayed. But the show also features sculpture, installations and truly inspiring prints highlighting his brilliance and stands as a loving tribute to the vast scope of his humor and vision.
