“Vulnerable Series,” digital prints
OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, August 1, 6-9 pm
Mondro is focusing on the complexity of human relationships. To create her large format digital images, abstract human figures are posed in various gestures to convey emotions, intimacy, and vulnerability, and then photographed. The human figures are life-size flexible sculptures hand-crocheted out of steel wire. Crocheted wire allows the figures to interlace each other physically and metaphorically, expressing these communal sensibilities. The artist states that the color and texture of the steel wire adds to the work by portraying the figures as ethereal silhouettes, evoking associations with mortality and spirituality.
