An inspiring new art collection recognizing the complex relationship between age and the human body will soon be on display at the solo exhibition of Constance McBride’s latest work A Show of Hands.
This exhibition is presented by Shade Projects, and the awe-inspiring art will be displayed in the Bokeh Gallery at the monOrchid in the heart of Roosevelt Row.
This is the latest addition to downtown’s renowned artistic scene, and serves as another example of how the city boasts a unique array of talented artists, all with different strengths and passions.
McBride creates clay and mixed-media sculptures that examine the complexity of the human race, showcasing important subjects including the aging process and it’s affects on the human body.
McBride draws inspiration from her surrounding landscape and the natural world. She is recognized for using dry surface treatments and a unique sculpting method to create contorted figures rather than images of perfection. Her interest in the unique effects time has on the human body and the emotions that go along with this.
In 2016, McBride received an Emerging Artist Grant from Contemporary Forum, an organization that supports the Phoenix Art Museum.
Nicole Royse, the monOrchid and Shade Projects curator, will host the Opening Reception for the exhibition on First Friday, December 2, from 6:00 pm-10:00 pm. The exhibition will be displayed through December 26.
