“This February at sixspace Arizona-based artist Carrie Marill presents her latest body of work, Duke and Duchess; an exhibition based on the Sotheby estate auction for the duke and duchessĀ of Windsor. Duke and Duchess contains fourteen gouache paintings depicting personal items included in this auction. Mounted in walnut frames with adorning ribbons attached (marked with the Windsor/Wallis family seal), these works poke fun at genre painting and the idea of ownership. Perhaps most significantly, Marill’s new paintings deal with the gluttony of winning and how the act of gaining a possession is often times more thrilling than the end result.”
