Theresa Wingert

During the month of October, Froelick Gallery presents Casting Call, a collection of paintings and photographs by multidisciplinary artist Theresa Wingert. A professional director of short films, music videos and commercials, Wingert has captured thousands of images of individual faces- those actors and would-be actors who have auditioned for various projects. Using this caché of photos as her source material, she paints small acrylic portraits of people attempting to put their best selves forward. In the brief seconds provided in which to pose, these hopefuls each sought to communicate something important or interesting about themselves; to exude a sense of earnestness, sexiness, sweetness, humor, strength or mystery. Working with affection for her subjects, Wingert presents a beguiling panoply of human faces, features and expressions from a seldom-seen source.
