Explorations in Nude by Chanel Kennebrew

Opening Reception: Friday October 21st

October 21st – November 12th, 2016

Through these mixed media works, I use hand cutting and stacking to explore pealing back layers in terms of societies history, power and trends then moving into imagining, designing and building the future. The series Explorations In Nude is a a collection of mixed media work. It explores the generalization of the term nude as well as what it means to be transparent and completely naked and open in terms of shaking off categories. This new work comprised of collage, mixed media illustrations as well as had cut paper, and installations. Through these mixed media work I use hand cutting and stacking to explore pealing back layers in terms of societies history, power and trends and moving into imagining, designing and building the future.
