Interrelate by Grace Claypool.
The opening reception will be on Saturday, September 7th from 6pm-9pm during Nashville’s art crawl.
Women as a collective have an solid pack mentality that is possible because each individual is a multifaceted being.
These works are about women supporting each other.
These sculptures are not objectifying, but are representing the feminine experience: the ebbing and flowing, the protective and protected. These pieces aim to unravel the idea of femininity and show a side of primal self preservation.
This body of work is not about oppression but about support and the mutual relationship of women with each other.
