My Love Is Another KindExhibition dates: January 17- Feb. 21, 2010.
Curated by Nicole Lattuca.
Walking into Adobe Books, a smile, welcome, and glass of wine awaiting; Making way through the corridors of books, browsers, relaxers and artists to the back room; entering through a portal into a realm of tenderness, reflection, humour and Love.
Contreras' work skillfully and sensitively portrays scenes of care and affection. Forgoing the typical Stars of our visual Romantic fantasies, Contreras shows us a Love that is educated by time; and despite the sagging breasts, pudgy bellies, and wizened facades, is rich with coy delight, trust, and a warmth that I'm sure we all hope will accompany us into our Golden Years.
