VALUE by Alyssa Capri
In this series, Capri explores the idea of value. Using commercial masking paper as her base layer she paints vibrant emotive figures, depicting intimacy in everyday moments. Beauty can be presented and represented in the unconventional. Materials which are hardworking, but not expensive, bleached, or revered serve not only as the backdrop of this series but are distinctly representative of its ethos. Inclusion of thread, fabric, and fiber from personal belongings imbues further personal connection, literally integrating herself into the painting. Things that have been discarded or disregarded because they are seemingly ‘less’ or ‘poor’ create beauty and evoke emotion. Opening reception will be held on Friday, June 1st from 7-10pm. Call for gallery hours.
