High Five!

The Stranger’s arts editor, Jen Graves, not only wrote a nice little review of “Big Fuckin’ Hands,” but did it as a Stranger Suggests listing for this past Saturday night. Awesome!

‘Big Fuckin’ Hands’

(Art) Ellen Forney’s black-and-white hands on red backgrounds are big and fucking. The largest paintings are shorthand for sex acts (a fist gripping an index finger); the smaller ones are individual portraits of friends’ hands miming actual sexual acts. What a difference there is between the broad comedic shorthand and the surprisingly quiet, intimate gestures. We stand in the gap, a little embarrassed, a little turned on.
