Art Review: "The Clearing-Joey Fauerso"

jfauerso.jpg
Puppet love: Joey Fauerso
For "The Clearing," Joey Fauerso takes found, generic landscape scenes and inhabits them with photos of naked men. In one, a bearded, generally hairy man is leaping off a river rock while a majestic waterfall cascades in the background. In another, the same man (I think) stands watching at the edge of a lake while a geyser (I think) erupts in a plume of water. The men are obviously photographs that have been glued to the surface of the low-res inkjet prints, which seems sloppy.

The images would be more successful if Fauerso embedded the men more seamlessly into the landscapes. Don't miss Fauerso's video Me Time, in which the artist French kisses a series of generic puppets: A fireman, a policeman, a construction worker and a nurse. It's disturbingly sincere and hilarious.

Through July 23. Box 13 ArtSpace, 6700 Harrisburg, 713-533-8692.
