Chandra DeBuse’s work is a complement to the arrival of spring.

What’s another word for whimsy?

It should probably be DeBuse.

Regardless, the narrative vessels of Chandra DeBuse will provide a conversational counterpoint to Sue Tirrell’s work in the loft gallery. Where Tirrell’s imagery is reminiscent of vintage storybook illustrations and classic woodcuts, the drawings and forms of DeBuse lend themselves to associations found in the portfolios of late 90s cartoonists or new school tattoo artists. Her forms present the same pillowy tension as her characters. She is a ceramist in league with the sensibilities of Wayne White. Nothing should be taken too seriously, and yet…

Everything is handled with serious conviction.
