CURATOR’S INSIGHT

‘Imagine Marilyn Monroe uttering the phase, “Oh Pool Boy” as she picked up a martini shaker and two chilled glasses right after slipping out of her robe or, more recently, SNL’s Pete Davidson as Chad the full-service pool boy having a fling with Julia Louis-Dreyfus until upstaged by the new “lawn boy” – a tank-topped Nick Jonas.  Bottom line, the expression ‘Oh Pool Boy’ makes you smile.   Mostly because of the implied narrative of course but it also conjures up imagery of fun and for this exhibit it is the catalyst for a celebration of ‘island life’.  The pools.  The beaches.  The romance.   And the joy of the much-needed summer blues.  All mediums partake in the celebration but it is Nelson De La Nuez’s pop art that is the inspiration.’Andrea McCafferty & Kat O’Neill -Co-Owners and Co-Directors
