Little Pink Houses at CAMP Gallery
Rehoboth Beach artist Terry M. Isner will exhibit his new show Little Pink Houses at CAMP Rehoboth, 37 Baltimore Ave., on Saturday, August 11 from 6-11 p.m.
Isner’s show Little Pink Houses is inspired by John Mellencamp’s Scarecrow album released in 1985.
“The little pink house represents what we have and should not take for granted: our safe haven that can so easily be lost by unemployment, health, and natural disaster. It is a symbol of our evolving landscape where families come in many different forms, and our homes are filled with many types of love. These paintings are to remind us to be thankful and be hopeful.”
Isner’s work is inspired by music, social events, and pop culture, and he describes his work as folk-pop-art. “I love to use bright, happy colors intertwined with graphics and shapes for whimsical story telling.”
The Little Pink Houses show was done in acrylics on both canvas and paper. Though the theme of little pink houses is obvious throughout his work, there are two distinct styles Isner uses to tell his story. His paper and acrylic pieces were inspired by pop artists like Keith Haring and Britto, while his acrylic and canvas pieces take on a more folk art style, creating a new perspective on landscapes.
CAMP Rehoboth hosts monthly shows that Isner helps curate.
