The Charlotte Street Arts Centre presents CONSUME by Fredericton-based artist, Allison Green, a solo exhibition of mixed media portraits discussing the power of vice to mould identity. Consume opens in the Charlotte Glencross Gallery on Friday, January 24 from 5:30-7pm and runs until March 3, 2014.
Green describes the concept behind the exhibition by explaining that, “In pursuit of our wants, we undercut our needs. Our identities and motivations are hijacked for one goal: to consume.” About the works, she describes, “Each piece is a portrait of an individual with a past or present addiction. They are constructed entirely of objects related to that particular vice. I’ve worn all these faces too. They are not hard to find… Addiction comes for each of us: the TV watcher, the shopper, the compulsive eater. It is a thing inside.”
The found object portraits in Consume are a departure from Allison Green’s usual textile-based work. Green’s art practice has incorporated a number of technical approaches, such as free motion machine quilting (stitch drawing), silk painting, felting, drawing and more, in the production of wearable art, textile objects, illustrations and sculpture. As well, she recently completed an internship at Sculpture Saint John that gave her an opportunity to work with granite, fuelling a passion for merging textile, stone and the natural world.
Green holds a diploma in Fashion: Textile Design from the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design and is currently continuing at NBCCD in the Graduate Studies certificate program. Her notable accomplishments as a student include the Governor General’s Academic Medal, the Duffie-Crowell Award, the Nel Oudemans Scholarship and a multitude of other scholarships and awards recognizing her academic achievements. Green has shown her work in group exhibitions throughout the Atlantic provinces. Consume is her first solo exhibition.
The Charlotte Street Arts Centre opens the doors of creative expression to all. Admission to the Charlotte Glencross Gallery is always free, and all are welcome to join us for the opening reception on January 24th, beginning at 5:30pm.
