Art Gym Denver is excited to announce A. Muse vs. B. Muse by Robin Whatley in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception April 25 from 5 – 8PM. A. Muse vs. B. Muse by Robin Whatley explores the artistic process of searching for your muse through collage and painting.
The artist’s muse has a rich history in the art canon. As viewers, however, we are normally only privy to the work created after a muse has been established. Robin Whatley’s new series of mixed media paintings, A. Muse vs. B. Muse, opens the door to the process of searching for her muse. In a conversation about her new series, Whatley explained some of the challenges and pleasures she has faced in this ongoing search. She has pushed her art-making process, allowing herself to play, explore and experiment. At times, this experimentation has yielded exciting results, while at other times, she has been left searching and exploring more. In her artist statement, Whatley says “as an artist, I am continually seeking my muse. Like trying to find the personal meaning of life, it can, at times, amuse me, but it also bemuses and slips elusively from me.”
Join us on May 7 for a Conversation with the Artists from 5-6PM.
Also opening at Art Gym Denver is Polytopiary by Mackenzie Browning in the Art Gym Gallery. Polytopiary consists of paper installations exploring the idea of idyllic communities. Join us for the opening reception on Thursday, April 25 from 5-8PM.
