Archetypes of Femininity
Sculpture by Cris Ianculescu
April 3, 2017 – April 29, 2017
Opening Reception: Friday, April 14th 6-9PM
Meet The Artist: Saturdays during the show from 1-3PM
In this exhibition, Cris Ianculescu responds to the idea of primordial mother, the universal source and creator of life. Like white light through a prism, the idea of the primordial mother fans out into a spectrum of archetypes, discrete images that have filled our collective unconscious since prehistory.
Cris Ianculescu explores some of these archetypes in his latest show. Through stone carving, he brings forth images of women as dreams and objects of romantic yearning, women as mothers and sources of life and nurture, women as seductresses triumphant in their power, and women as mirages, or portals into unknowable worlds.
