What's New from Mike Foley Art

CEO Cheer Leaders

Opening August 7 through August 28, CEO CHEER LEADERS is a show that gave me a chance to look into the faces of friends and strangers and try to capture a personality after the color and details are stripped away. Obsessed with more painterly portraits and shows dedicated to blues artists, iconic snack cake girls and a series of oils that merges Santa with Christ, these images are reduced to black and white dots. With words could they inspire more greeting cards? Intermingled with cheer, could a collection of faces be interesting enough to fill a wall? Like a family photo album mixed with a high school pep rally, are corporations ready for this type of portrait art installation? I'm not sure. But it was fun to create.
