Volta: New Work by Rachel Quirk

Jan. 18, 2013 - March 16, 2013 at Greymatter Gallery, 207 E. Buffalo St., Suite 222

"Volta" is a critical exploration of the roles that the female image inhabits in both historical and contemporary aesthetics. In it, Quirk subverts traditional portrayals of female models and actresses by capturing film stills at specific moments in time. She offers freeze-frame images of females turning around to meet the viewer's gaze, their backs forever turned defiantly against the gaze.

An artist reception will be held Friday, Jan. 18 from 5 to 9 p.m. as part of Winter Gallery Night.
