Gillian Iles: a short trip to the infinite

Gillian Iles: a short trip to the infinite

Gillian Iles: a short trip to the infinite

January 27 – March 18, 2018

in the Coppa Gallery and Anne Sims Heritage Gallery

Opening reception: Thursday, February 1 at 7PM

 

Gillian Iles assembles three sequential installations that combine painting, sculpture and constructions. Through this environment, her narrative follows a group of young protagonists faced with self-awareness and realization of their own potential. Iles’s trilogy portrays the primal impulse for generational shifts and challenges to accepted ideals, as well as the establishment’s prerogative to remain intact.

Akin to Eden, this environment combines primal desire, threat, reward and peril. Through this immersive experience—together with the artist and her characters—we embark on a journey of endless possibilities filled with discovery and transformation.

State of Mind: Remixing & Deconstructing Beliefs

January 27 – March 18, 2018

in the Jill Dyall Community Gallery

Opening reception: Thursday, February 1 at 7PM

Sheryl A. Keen is a writer and artist whose materially-rich visual art promotes the advancement of Black identity and a searching quest for personal expression. Keen’s vibrant, highly-modelled surfaces explore themes of strength and resilience; the beauty and grace of women.

Merging figurative and abstract elements, the artist states: “Since much of my art is 3D, I use colour to make the art come alive. The work of art seems to become a living, breathing thing—art personified.”

Keen earned a Bachelor’s degree in History with a minor in English Literature from the University of the West Indies.
