Hidden Perspectives

Victoria Abballe

Hidden Perspectives stems from the artist’s ongoing interests in the earth’s geomorphology. The exhibit invites the viewer to take a deeper dive into numerous landform processes which shape the world as we see it today. This body of work aims to provide the viewer with a new way of perceiving the world by sharing some geomorphic processes and landscapes through the lens of printmaking and photography.

Cocoon

Kira Alexanian

Cocoon reflects on growth, nostalgia and the whimsicality of childhood. This solo exhibition studies the overlaps between painting, textile work, and sculpture installation. Inspired by literal and imaginative symbols of the artist’s childhood, Cocoon weaves the dreamy softness of youth with a certain melancholy that lies in one’s reflection of childhood. At times, flawed mark-making and visible signs of labour emphasize an imperfect, almost childlike hand. Bright colours and warm environments are meant to encompass the viewer in an eccentric world of fantastical innocence. Precise symmetry meets arbitrary expressive lines in an attempt to recollect the intricate details of adolescence. The artist invites viewers to interact with and entwine themselves in Cocoon, but to be gentle, nurturing, and tender while doing so.

Rage Room

Zoe Dougherty

Rage Room is the embodiment of feminine anger and struggles under the pressure of patriarchal standards and expectations. Zoe Dougherty aims to show the repression of female rage through exaggerated expressions and aggressive gestures, grabbing flesh and squeezing fluids to not only take charge of their body, but provides discomfort through chaos and lack of stability in order to regain control of womanhood. Rage Room is a love letter to furious and uncontrollable feminine people everywhere.
