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.
