KQED: Gallery Crawl (25 of 38)
« | »

In November 2009,GALLERY CRAWL checked out SPARROW LANE, a series of photographs by Portland artist Holly Andres at the Robert Koch Gallery in San Francisco. Inspired by classic Nancy Drew book covers and Hitchcock films, Andres handcrafts highly-stylized scenes featuring a group of young girls grappling with mysterious objects, secret rooms, forbidden knowledge, and ultimately their own burgeoning sexuality. Through her use of bright colors and scenery built from props and costumes found mostly in thrift stores, Andres captures the female experience in a timeless, dream-like world filled with mystery, innocence and suspense.
