On view July 20th – July 24th
Ash Strazzinski is a visual artist and creative placemaker who is deeply invested in playtime; wildly curious about bodies; mystified by femininity and masculinity; and confused about gender. Her work is a lifelong effort to unlearn what she has been taught about gender, relationships, spirituality, and other majority rule social understandings of success and respectability.
Strazzinski’s investigations around her ideas of love, intimacy, and vulnerability helps her to understand boundaries and consent, joy and pleasure, and a deep sense of connection and respect for self and for others. Emotion, language, communication, memory, and dreams are also important as she explores intimacy, vulnerability, and the machinations of close relationships.
Currently, her work is an attempt to reparent herself through an emotional obstacle course built from symbols of memories and dreams through a series of objects, images, and installations where her inner-child can re-learn how to live, love, and be.
During open hours, the community is encouraged to stop in to visit the artist and see the work. There will be a small lounge with coffee and tea available along with books and objects that are of inspiration to the artist.
