Spoke Art September Group Show – Opening Night

United by a common subject but never a common style, the four featured artists at Spoke Art Gallery's September group show offer different takes on femininity—sometimes seductive and other times unsettling, but a whole lotta woman on all counts. Handiedan, Craww, Charmaine Olivia and Tatiana Suarez cast female characters as the protagonists of their paintings and mixed media works, exploring the wide range of emotions and questions the female form can provoke. Curated by Hi-Fructose online editor Ken Harman, the show brings together these artists' distinct voices. Handiedan's multi-layered metal collages counterbalance Craww's softer watercolor work, while Tatiana Suarez's wide-eyed nymphs hang happily alongside Charmaine Olivia's deathly seductresses. Check out the photos from the opening night below. — Review by Nastia Voynovskaya, photos by Shaun Roberts.
