Opening Reception & Exhibit: Victory, by Nicole Avery, Friday, 3/1, 5-7pm

306 Russell / Offit Gallery

Victory presents the black female in an array of darker hues, unapologetically... giving breath to the fortitude demonstrated in the character, intellect and physical appearance of the women celebrated in Marvel’s recent Black Panther movie. Each piece is prophetic in its own right. Nestled within the larger aesthetic of each piece are rhythmic alliterations of contiguous lines converging to make meaning, intuitively. Much of what was created emerged, mysteriously, bypassing the artist’s conscious being. Notwithstanding, the pieces displayed proffer a cross-cultural investigation of autochthonous traditions and general metaphysics. In all, the essence of the 9 models featured here interact interdependently with the prophetic birthing a newer narrative. Experience the inscriptions of the ancestors etched into my aesthetic lobe (the right side of the brain) and feel the force of spiritual transference transcending into meaning.

Elaine Nicole Avery earned two Masters degrees, as well as an Ed'D from Teachers College, Columbia University. She has taught in the Bronx, New York, and Compton, Los Angeles, and has exhibited widely.
