Vancouver's PopTarts of Pop
Art chose to band together because there is strength in numbers.The number
three to be exact,the Trinity. Vicki M., artist and curator, hot tempered
red-head...Arlene Kofol, multi-media artist, raven-haired vixen...and Nicole
Steen, artist, musician...bottle-blonde bombshell.
Formed in 1997 out of a great desire
to infuse the local art scene with much needed "girly"art. Images of women,focusing
on symbolism,pop icons and the hypocrisy of so-called social "values" in
our media influenced mass culture.
"Glamour" and "Danger" being key
words in our vocabularies, exhibits are based on themes that are accentuated
on opening nights with costume and music. Past shows have included Pin-Up
Girls,Villainesses and Female Musicians.
Besides painting constantly and furiously
,we spend our time sipping cocktails getting down to the nitty-gritty of
being gals and launching our collective conspiracy with a little irony
and alot of humour.
Vicki, Arlene, Nicole
