Apama Mackey Gallery presents Unnatural and Feral opening reception
Unnatural by Cara Romero debuts for the first time in Texas and deals with the issue of climate change and the direct impact on indigenous people who are being subject to extreme weather patterns which attribute to the rising water levels. In compulsive need for content, Romero confronts the viewer with a flood and a drowning of not only in flesh, but in account of tribal identity.
Feral by Nicole Waszak identifies the purity of thought and daydreams of past incarnations through a heroine character worthy of The Brothers Grimm. Caught up in magical events where animals and humans interchange roles and species, our heroine presents fables in mid-story, suspending any lessons to be learned while concealing any intimations of the clandestine endings. These ever changing environments reflect Waszak’s own journey of moving several times in childhood.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through November 4.
