Le 15 mars prochain, Ariane Fairlie vous présente Wake, Girl à la galerie AVE!
Wake, Girl records feelings of anxiety, depression, isolation, and languish, and is also an attempt to escape or wake from those feelings through painting, print, and photography. Most of the artwork in this exhibition was created in winter, and the artist’s struggle to find inspiration in such a barren period ultimately became the impetus for the work. The exhibition title references a quote by American poet, Eleanor Ross Taylor (n. 1920):
" Wake, girl. Your head is becoming the pillow "
The artist’s ongoing exploration of the female figure relates to her lived experience identifying as female, and the body’s ability to express emotion.
