In the Shadow of the Feminine: Virtual Opening Reception – Sat. Dec 5, 4-5pm
The depth of the shadow is equivalent to the strength of the light. They are relative and dependent on each other without hierarchy Shadows are often subtle, unseen yet necessary for sight. They play with our imaginations, our fears and dreams. The idea of a shadow has many implications; from the interference of light, the mysterious unknown, the Jungian idea of repressed aspects of the psyche, even the beginnings of painting have been associated with the tracing of a shadow. Throughout history, religion, and culture the feminine is often condemned to darkness, kept in the shadows, divided into categories such as virgin and whore. The show attempts to shine a light on the feminine shadow.
