About the exhibit:
PADDY CAMPANARO’s IN TENSE includes 2D and 3D work in several media and materials.
She has had work in both solo and group gallery shows in Los Angeles since the early '90s at Studio Raid, POST, Miller Durazo, Irvine Art Center, and others. Paddy especially enjoys being in alternative space shows like artists Michael Arata’s and Mark Dutcher’s forward thinking One Night Stand group shows at the Farmer’s Daughter Motel on Fairfax Ave.
Paddy has also read her poetry at many venues in Los Angeles over the years especially here where she’s read as a featured reader, at opens, marathon book readings, and special events. Under Pant is a two-volume chapbook of her poetry and Subjects Matter is a book of interviews with accompanying original portraits of eight Los Angeles-based artists. Singer/songwriter ROD SMEAR is included in the book as is poet ELLYN MAYBE, RODEO FOR THE SHEEPISH, and photographer MARK SAVAGE, who is well known for his Souls and Passions, The Los Angeles Poets Project.
Paddy continues to do interviews with Los Angeles-based artists and recently completed one with artist DAVID McDONALD.
