Ghosts: Show and tiny gallery are challenging
Sunday, May 20, 2007

Special to the Journal
It has been about six months since SEED Gallery moved from its original site just off Sixth Street to a new home nearby on North Liberty Street. The move was necessitated by changes in the use of property adjacent to the original gallery, which was opened 10 years ago by the then-newly founded artists’ cooperative known as SEED.
Unfortunately, the group’s new gallery, in what has been dubbed the Artists on Liberty Building, is no improvement on the original. The old gallery was small, but this one is even smaller – not much more than 10-by-10 feet – and tucked away at the end of a long corridor, in a room devoid of natural light. Rent rates are increasing in the Downtown Arts District, and this little cell may have been the best that SEED could afford.
The gallery’s current exhibition, a solo show by Woodie Anderson titled "Ghost Words," is worth seeing despite these limitations, and even though it requires the extra effort of making an advance appointment because of the lack of a gallery staff.
On view through Saturday, "Ghost Words" consists of 11 wall-mounted serigraph or silkscreen prints and a fabric-sculpture installation that incorporates printed surfaces. In a wall-text statement, Anderson wrote that the title refers to "words from our past that lurk in the shadows of our minds and emerge only when we are still enough to hear them."
Despite that definition’s vagueness, she manages to render the idea visually compelling in several prints that reference it, including the gray-hued one titled Ghost Words. It plays on the visual resemblance between two conventions of comic-strip illustration – word balloons and the free-floating anthropomorphized clouds that some comic-strip artists use to represent ghosts. Rising up from a small, silhouetted figure isolated at the bottom of this narrow, vertical print is a tornado-like cloud of dark or darkly outlined forms that resemble not only word balloons and comic-style ghosts but also spermatozoa. Faintly imprinted around the margins of this cloud of apparently ascending balloon forms are fragments of fine-print instructions for opening containers and sealing envelopes.
In Escape, a thematically related, chromatically bolder print, another figure – this one rendered in hot pink – sits on a high limb of a tall, red tree. Set off against an azure sky, the tree looms above a crowd of pink ghost-word balloons – akin to those in the previously described print – from whose clutches the limb-sitting figure appears to have escaped, at least temporarily. As in the show’s title drawing, the peripheries of this scene are strewn with fragments of fine-print instructions, in this case for filling out official documents.
Close inspection of Anderson’s Self-portrait with Ghost Residue reveals more ghost-word balloons and fine-print text fragments interspersed – along with label designs from mini-bottles of cognac-around the margins. Its central, photographically based images depict the front and back of a nude woman’s body, and are imprinted in a low-resolution, dot-screened format. Anderson has used red ink to superimpose on this nude body a series of concentrically geometric, tattoo-like patterns and stylized images, including an open eye in the palm of a disembodied hand.
Variations on the eye-in-hand image, a traditional emblem of action fused with insight, appear more prominently in several other prints.
Scar-like lines of zigzagging stitches, evidently applied with a sewing machine, accent the figure of a young woman with an outrageously elongated neck rising up from between bony shoulders in Anderson’s print titled Character. This spatially distorted figure is set off against a pastel-hued background of scratchy markings and small, faded-looking, images of more conventionally stylized figures. Scrawled sideways and to the right of the central figure is the sarcastically toned line, "Man, your character must be 25 stories high."
Dark, expressionistically rendered nudes dominate the show’s two largest prints, each measuring about three-by-two feet.
Anderson’s installation, Self-portrait with Ghost Words, consists of a dress or slip on a hanger suspended from the ceiling in front of a floral-patterned tablecloth on the wall above a pillow-strewn floor pallet. Anderson has imprinted most of these fabric objects with words and images. Life-size, dot-patterned prints of the front and back of a nude female body appear on the front and back sides of the dress or slip. The pastel-hued pillows, meanwhile, are imprinted with words of advice, derision or ironic assessment – "I can see you like to define things," for example, and "Participate now. You’ll be dead soon enough." One pillow features the single word "whore" in the center of a big disembodied eye.
Sometimes I feel like I should pull myself back and stop paying so much attention to signs.
