BEHAVING BADLY: SMOKING, DRINKING, AND SWEARING
by Beth Caspar and Patrice Lorenz

This tongue-in-cheek modular installation is two artists’ take on the notion of constraint. It features Patrice Lorenz’s pithy charcoal drawings of disembodied smokers and drinkers, and Beth Caspar’s playful shape-alphabet configurations, which look innocent but are in fact spelling out salty four-letter words.

The result is black-and-white drawings and brightly colored planar shapes that play off each other, like random snippets of conversations overheard at a bar over shots and cigarettes, periodically punctuated with a clearly audible expletive, creating a freewheeling atmosphere that even the most virtuous viewer will want to be part of.
