Kirsten Everberg at 1301 PE

The PR quotes:
“Everbergʼs subjects are less the actual buildings or locales and more the ways in which these cultural landmarks, icons, or markers have entered the public imagination” – Gloria H. Sutton
It's an interesting thought, painting cultural representations rather than physical and the notion seeps out and infects what it gets on with questions of where representations lay and is someone painting Ingmar Bergman's home solely because of its cultural cache or instead represent this cultural cache's consumption, the ant climbing to the grass's tip awaiting the sun or the maw of the goat.
