Suprina started her career as a prop-maker and reflected on this juncture, “I always felt conflicted fabricating objects that were mainly used to sell retail objects (a.k.a landfill)…My artwork is made with these very objects once they are cast away and not deemed the ‘next best thing’ anymore.” This progressive group exhibition features 4 artists who work with found materials, redefining the realm of “trash art.” Suprina upcycles materials into figurative pieces that address social injustices inflicted on marginalized groups. Jeffrey focuses on the reuse of materials involved in the process of creating. Gabriel combines elements of minimalism and punk attitude, remixing, slashing and transmuting unmatchable elements. Victoria investigates how fundamental changes in fabric can affect one’s perception of self-identity and the psyche of an entire society.
We will also be celebrating the installation of DNA Totem by Suprina in Marcus Garvey Park
