distant landscapes: peepdyedcrevicehotpinkridge
Crane Arts, along with The Happy Collaborationists are pleased to announce "distant landscapes: peepdyedcrevicehotpinkridge", an exhibition of works by Claire Ashley in the Icebox, from May 8th-31st, with an opening reception Thursday, May 9th 6-9 pm.
Ashley’s work is an unruly manifestation and hybrid of painting, sculpture, and performance. The space will be both occupied and infiltrated by one of Ashley’s painted, inflated plastic forms. Spray paint meets hard lines and both disappear into the folds and wrinkles of massive volumes that fill the spaces they inhabit. These hybrid objects, both comfortable and uncomfortable in their own skin create an unexpected path in painting, sculpture and performance that incorporates space as a key component to their bodies, as well as our own.
Claire Ashley is a Chicago based artist. She holds an MFA from The School of the Art Institute in Chicago as well as a BA from The Robert Gordon University in Scotland. Most recently, her show "frizzflopsqueezepop" was seen at the Chicago Cultural Center in Chicago. She has shown extensively throughout the United States and Europe.
Happy Collaborationists is the curatorial collective of Anna Trier and Meredith Weber. “Happy C” provides exhibition opportunities for performance, installation and media works - including but not limited to solo exhibitions, public programming and private event planning. Together Anna and Meredith also collaborate on their own performance art practice under the name Meredith and Anna.
