September 11–October 17, 1998
Artspeak Gallery is pleased to present the first exhibition in a series of shows dealing with the constraints of architectural space and the body. Appropriate Interiors will feature mixed-media paintings by Johannes Zits. Using computer based images as the back-drop for his paintings, Zits combines mediums within a territory normally claimed by female feminist practitioners. Zits questions the domestic sphere from a gay male perspective and imaged into the ‘perfect/happy home’ found in interior design magazines, he inserts nude, male, homosexual couples displayed unabashedly and uncompromisingly in the immaculate interiors of a designer home.
