Pieces on view explore the immersive narratives of female artists:

  • connections that grow from the inner self into the outside world;
  • expressions and momentary imprints of the present;
  • tactile, physical, sensual and mental experiences, as well as symbolic references to vibrant cultures and mythological archetypes;
  • irony, esthetics, age, everyday routine, nature, and introspection.
