You Are So Beautiful and I Am a Fool
Start Date 10/06/2011

Location Los Angeles 
Country United States 
Description The SCI-Arc Library Gallery presents a series of new paintings by Los Angeles-based artist and SCI-Arc public programs coordinator Wendy Heldmann. You Are So Beautiful and I Am A Fool comprises still life paintings depicting the architectural studio culture replete with cluttered desks, overturned chairs, site models, books, coffee cups, and the materials and tools of the trade such as spray cans, rolls of paper and tape, stacks of foam and plywood, computer peripherals, x-acto knifes and pens.

Investigating the quiet chaos of the architecture students’ all-night work environment, these polychromatic, loosely rendered works depict a singular moment in a specific place—the end of term studio. At once isolated and abandoned, the spaces overflow with the belongings of an individual and the remnants of a creative process. The traces of working and making, such as scraps, notes, name tags, and paint spills not only describe the vernacular of the work surfaces in the studio, but also reveal the process of distinguishing the private in a communal space and act as portraits of the students who occupy these spaces.
