Art from the Heart: Kelly Reemtsen’s Breaking and Entering

Breaking&Entering I consider artist Kelly Reemtsen the queen of illustrative
juxtaposition. My God, just look at the sexy back on this woman, the
crisp contours of her sun dress, her humongous diamond ring, that tinkling charm bracelet—

And of course, the size of her wire cutters.

She
plans on doing some serious damage.

I imagine that's because
she's suffered some slight herself. What was it? Did her teenager
refuse to get out of his room. Is it time to see what the hubby has
locked up in the tool shed?  Did a neighbor forget to return her silver
tea set?

Whatever the issue, it's payback time.

Even if that
means getting her nice white dress smudged. 

One way or another,
we women always end up doing the dirty work.

In my book, Secret
Lives of Husbands and Wives
, one plot thread has to do with break-ins
that are occurring all over the supposedly secure gated community where
my heroine lives. But let's face it: no place is totally safe and
secure.

Even our hearts can be stolen.

Ms. Reemtsen has a
whole series of these desperate housewives. They are total eye candy:
bonbons of angst in retro couture. Just my kind of art, because it's
straight from the heart.

In fact, she's exhibiting this week
(March 3 – 7, 2010), in New York, at the Armory: Piers 92 and 94, at 12th Avenue and 55th Street, Clinton, to be exact; . Check out the
information here, or below…

Wish I were there,
