Curious Nature is an exploration of inner and outer worlds and a playful exchange between the two. The characters are fused with nature, the external ‘garment’ is a metaphor for the internal world, rather then wearing her heart on her sleeve ‘she’ is wearing her heart from collar to hem. The organic elements that flow out from her core are a fusion of flora, fauna and flesh. These strange garments embody the essence of her being, her inner workings on display… Her body is ornamentation, a scared space, a glass house.
AFA will host a reception for the Artist on October 19th from 6-8PM. RSVP requested via 212.226.7374 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The gallery is located at 54 Greene Street in SoHo (corner of Greene and Broome). The exhibition runs through November 15th. Admission is free and open to the public.
