Milk & Night Curatorial stuns with ANGE's newest exhibit, Equilibrium, featuring a series of new works by the artist uncovering the mysticism present in our ordinary lives. Dealing with themes of transformation, the artist's keen eye toward the magic inherent in the human body drives the strength of the show's success. The subjects of ANGE's work gaze back at the viewer, compelling them to examine how these forms and attitudes manifest in their everyday lives. What ANGE achieves is nothing short of alchemy: a mutation of the elements of our humanity into an elevating and unsettling sense of power.
Themes of power play an important part throughout the exhibit. Self-empowerment, female empowerment, the power we exert on others: ANGE moves through it all in her images of the magical self. By integrating a sense of mystical realism, tempered with ritualistic self-presentation, ANGE unabashedly reveals the hyper-realistic qualities we all seek in exploring an understanding of our greater, spiritual selves.
Delving into the ritual moving of the seasons through the calendar year, ANGE shocks and awes with the sheer range of human emotion presented through the shimmering skin and provocative glances in Equilibrium.
Make sure to catch the show, opening this Friday, May 5th at Lodge Gallery (131 Chrystie Street) from 6-9 pm - on view through May 7, 2017.
