November 7 – December 22, 2019
Artist: Krisi Abbott
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 7, 6—8 pm
Expanding on a very successful 2018 artistic series titled Woman Warriors, Minneapolis artist Kristi Abbott will introduce a number of male warriors to compliment the women in the exhibition, World Warriors. These original collages incorporate paper, glitter, transfer images, paint, pencil, printmaking and more to create intricate and layered portraits. The characters that Abbott chooses to create reflect strength and energy from personas around the world and across time. Imagined through costuming, photographs, paintings, world maps, and other elements, the portraits carry certain cultural markers distinctive to their geography and heritage, but their power and beauty speak universally to the essence of the female and male warrior. Abbott’s portraits are often embedded with hidden images, “small secrets” relating back to some part of the personality or biography of the individual, unlocking their story one detail at a time.
