The Amazing Technicolor Visions of Louis St. Lewis and Sean Yseult

comment

Sometime when we weren't looking, North Carolinians became a prominent if unexpected presence in this city's art and culture circles. Celebrating this Creole-Tar Heel connection at Farrington-Smith are the works of hard-rocking New Orleans resident and North Carolina native Sean Yseult and fellow North Carolina School of the Arts (before he was thrown out) veteran Louis St. Lewis. A former bassist with White Zombie and The Cramps, Yseult proffers her own brand of retro-psyche-neo-pop silkscreen prints while St. Lewis goes ballistic in a series of visual screeds against the likes of a certain U.S. president and a few others. Among their more intriguing works are some collaborative collage portraits of musicians, many of them local, suggesting that soul mates need not live in the same state to share a similar state of mind. --ÊD .
