My Potential Dates

Hampden Gallery  February 26 – March 29, 2012
Opening Reception February 26 from 2 Pm To 5 Pm

This installation is based on the artist’s experience with internet dating during March through May of 2009. On the dating site, she typed in her zip code (Holyoke, Mass) and clicked in results for all the men within a 15 mile radius between the ages of 40 and 60 (her age was 50 at the time).
Fascinated by this on-line human connectivity and its results, Johnquest  then created paintings and mixed media works that reference the prospective dates’ photos. In doing so, Johnquest  comments on the highs and lows of high- tech courtship through  low-tech installation.
