Amber Collins: THE OFFERING

EXHIBITION OPENING: Friday, August 22, 7-10pm

EXHIBITION RUNS: Aug 22 – 26, 2014

Explore Collins’ debut exhibition The Offering, a bod y of works born out of emotional interaction – the visceral; a dialogue between the human experience and the filters of perception.

Focusing on the feminine effect, the exhibit explores the complexities of societal norms, specifically regarding our acceptance of the power-shift between male and female constructs. It’s completely common that we describe men as virile and women as fertile. However, virility expresses the connotation of power while fertility articulates being fruitful. The discrepancy is subtle yet profound. We overlook the immeasurable sacrifices of women transitioning into motherhood. We fail to see that in surrendering their power they become it; power-ful. The Offering is a playful look at the virile feminine. Using masks that infer organic, primal form and posturing, you’re invited to question how common language forms your understanding of the world around you. By subverting what is popularly and archaically categorized as normal or acceptable, Collins works to plant seeds of empowerment and awareness of the hypercritical minutiae that are still so widely tolerated and digested.

Dioramas & Paintings by BEN DYCK

EXHIBIT RUNS: August 8-13, 2014

“Unknown Landscapes” is an exhibition of artworks inspired by non-existent places.  Created from the left-over pieces of stencils used in previous artworks, Dyck’s dioramas are representations of ever-changing, ever-moving lands. This exhibition is made to remind us that we often overlook the materials that have to be cleared away to make way for the new – but that it is the rot and decay of shrubs and trees that help to nurture the new growth of a blooming forest.
