FRANKIE SLAUGHTER: SELF SCENE

Opening Reception: Friday, October 4th 5:00 until 8:00

Exhibition Dates: October 4th-October 29th

"My previous mixed media and ceramic work is, for me, like the two-dimensional paintings in this exhibition, a necessary translation in visual terms of my intuitive processes. This creative production feels both urgent and exploratory. For Scene/Unseen, it became crucial to give form not only to the raw, vulnerable underbelly but also to its opposite: the public self, the self who must conform and perform in society, the self-who’s invited, dresses up, inhabits a role, who edits her more authentic nature. The oversized elements in the exhibition and what each suggests—cage, armor, discomfort, exaggerated beauty—point to the overwhelming space this presentation self-occupies and to the magnitude and essence of the struggle to meet hardwired expectations of the exterior self. The alchemy I am after is not the grain of sand that becomes the pearl, but, rather, the reverse—an undoing of the pearl, so to speak, back to the grit and truth of who I am, of who we are.
