About the exhibition

For our winter season, Themes+Projects gallery presents, Flowing in Stillness by Maia Flore.

Obsessed by the art of dance, Maia uses the camera to record the figure’s motion in still photographs at the edge of a transformation. From wrinkles, to the drapes of the garment we wear, our bodies constantly unfold themselves tracing chapters of our passage.  As seen in the Birth of  Venus, by Sandro Botticelli,  Venus stands at the edge of a shell with the wind showering her, she holds a tension in her stillness with grace.  This tension in stillness inspires Maia,  as she conducts her movements with the figure in mind.

 

In her previous work, colorful costumes has allowed Maia’s characters to find their personality.  Successively, the red, yellow and green dress tinted this single character of a wacky and absurd gestures in surrealist scenes.  With this almost monochromatic palette, the presence of the woman transforms the scenes into a daydream painting that very much recall the impressionist desire for an ideal stimulation of our senses.

 

On view: January 11 to February 29, 2020

 

Artist Reception: Saturday, January 11, 2020 from 5-8pm.
