Flux by Annie O’Neill
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 16, 2013, 3 – 8 p.m.
253 Collective Art Gallery, 1901 South Jefferson Avenue, Suite 100, Tacoma
Flux, Annie’s current series of work, focuses on time and its relation to beauty and success. The series of five small scale collages, focus on the idea of timeless beauty verses time sensitive ascetics. The work also addresses the general flux of the American standard of beauty, particularly the fleeting fashion trends of 1960′s America juxtaposed with the persistent, timeless traditions of beauty in Nuba tribal culture. Recycled materials and re-purposed items are presented as paintings, which discuss the idea of how success is measured and awarded and how that concept changes as we age.
Annie’s first show with Tacoma Art Collective, 253 Collective, opens this Thursday, May 16th as part of 3rd Thursday Tacoma’s Art Mingle. The collective is open Saturdays 12-5pm and the Third Thursdays 3-8pm. 1901 S. Jefferson St., Suite 100, Tacoma WA 98402, Additional Viewing/Lobby hours are M-F, 9 am to 5 pm.
