"June brides may want to steer clear of Kelly Sherman's show "Success & Happiness" at Barbara Krakow Gallery. It features a thoughtful deconstruction of the iconography and packaging of the modern bride. That princess-for-a-day role can be challenging enough to live up to. Seeing this exhibit could trigger a bridal identity crisis. … None of Sherman's work is a simple critique of advertising. Nor is she calling us out for our naked longing for deep, sink-in hospitality. This work prompts us to shed the trappings of sales and stories and return to the elusive essence of desire as something that reveals us, and keeps us moving forward."
"Boston conceptual artist Kelly Sherman continues to plumb the disconnect between our consumerist culture and our craving for human connection in her new show "Success & Happiness" at Boston’s Barbara Krakow Gallery."
