Chela Fielding and Ce Ce Landoli 

When: Feb. 6-28 2009

Chela Fielding's Collections from Within and CeCelandoli'sEvidence of Love explore emotional territory --history, memory, motherhood, familial love-- through contemporary means. Nostalgia and an eccentric sense of humor vie in Fielding's work: "Tea Ladies" affixes small, torn photos of women in cloche hats to a pair of teabags; "Swim" is a cobalt blue panel juxtaposing a nose clip and its packaging with schematically painted pool and swimsuit; "Inseminator" speaks proudly for itself. Landoli's collages are made from fragments cut from design and shelter magazines; so perfectly balanced are image, color, and texture in, for example, "From Day to Night" or "Brown Study a la Browning" that they evoke a Cornellian nostalgia for an imagined past -- irresistible even if your family's real digs and your own real room were unpoetic memory boxes. Through February 28 at Mercury 20 (25 Grand Ave., Oakland).MercuryTwenty.com or 510-701-4620.
