Join us on Wednesday, November 7 from 6 – 7PM for an artist talk with Ingrid vB Porter titled “The Intersection of Art, Mythology and Personal Process.” Free and open to the public. Her exhibition Other Worldly is on display at Art Gym November 1-23, 2018.
Other Worldly, by Ingrid vB Porter, performs an investigation into how an artist’s personal mythology and metaphor plays into their individual practice. With a background in archetypal art therapy, Porter uses her practice to create art that helps the viewer explore their own lives. Speaking on this, Porter states “I find the intersection of personal story, mythology and psychology to be a rich, fascinating and rewarding place…these elements bring new – and often unexpected – layers of meaning to my paintings and illustrated stories.” One example of this is Porter’s new book titled #Me Too – Persephone which recontextualizes the classic Greek myth in the current #metoo movement.
