Virginia Fifield: Them/Us
Jan. 25 – March 14, 2014
Opening Reception: Fri., Jan. 24, 6 – 9 pm
Them/Us is an exhibition of large-scale drawings in charcoal by Virginia Fifield. Her work in high realism presents selectively edited drawings of animal subjects in the form of portraiture. Chosen images are “re-presented” in a stark, over-scale format, deliberately devoid of color and context to strip away all sentimental and stylized stereotypical associations. This process initiates a deeper contemplation and internal dialogue about the natural world and the relationship in which we coexist.
