Five coeval artists from the Newark area reclaim ideas, materials, and roles for their specific use in creating new forms. They conjure a discussion of culture and identity spanning through time. This exhibition will fuse the sculptural works of the artists by exploring the use of tradition and myth to define history, present day, and future.
Dominique Duroseau’s work focuses on both a philosophical and physical level of being. Her choice of material and pallet creates rhythm and multiplicity throughout her work.
Amanda Thackray uses non-traditional materials reflecting common objects which examine the idea of identity as a human being.
Adrienne Wheeler uses bundling techniques to create powerful and power-filled forms highlighting contemporary ideologies and our personal role in culture and violence.
Bisa Washington repurposes specific objects in her sculptures as a way to reclaim nationality, identity, religion and customs and develop legacy.
Noelle Lorraine Williams integrates craft and history to discuss our role in society and the communities we are actively part of.
Curated by Colleen Gutwein.
