Participating Artist(s): Marshall Elliott、Paul Kos、Isabelle Sorrell、Christopher Upham

he Jules Maeght Gallery is pleased to present Bitter Creek Sweet Water, a group exhibition influenced by the nostalgia of the American West. The exhibition features four local artists: Marshall Elliott, Paul Kos, Isabelle Sorrell and Christopher Upham, who engage in a multimedia dialogue encompassing sculpture, installation, video, painting and photography.

Artwork that explores the concept of the American West simultaneously invites us to the unspoiled, untouched west that we long for, while encouraging a responsibility for the land. The name of the exhibition draws on the irony of naming. Beautiful places with names such as Bitter Creek discourage visitors, while Sweet Water changes the perception of a place disregarded and without appeal. This convention questions the way we remember the land, and in turn the way we create history. Water, whether bitter or sweet is what follows the frontier, “the end of where there is soil…”
