Visual Art Alice Wheeler ≠ Nirvana

This is the last straw. Up right now at the dealer’s choice show at Wright Exhibition Space in South Lake Union is a photograph by Alice Wheeler of Kurt Cobain wearing sunglasses.
I’m thrilled that Wheeler was selected for the show, because her photographs are electric and strange. The way they use color, movement, and voyeurism? Every one of them is alive.
SO FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, CAN WE SEE SOMETHING BESIDES HER KURT COBAIN PHOTOGRAPHS, PLEASE?
Wheeler has plenty of subjects, not just the one. Here are a few.
Girl with Orange Hair, Hempfest
What Women See at Night
She’s represented by Greg Kucera Gallery but hasn’t had a show there since 2003. I just called there; she’s not on the schedule for 2009.
Say it with me: WE WANT ALICE!
