ABOUT THIS ART:
This November, 323East Gallery will once again host Glass, Cinder & Thorns. The all-women, fairy-tale inspired group exhibition features over 20 new pieces from some of today's best female artists curated by April Segedi.
"As children, our parents often read us bedtime stories of Little Mermaids, Sleeping Beauties, and Little Red Riding Hoods. However, these seemingly innocent stories often had evil lurking within their pages. The more we age, the more we realize how wonderful being an innocent child can sometimes be as we lose ourselves in fantasies of white horses, magic, and dazzling princesses. What Disney failed to mention is that the mermaid dies, multiple suitors defiled Sleeping Beauty, and the wolf ate grandma. Horrible things happen everyday and we all sometimes wish for a place and time where life is simpler and better. We find ourselves yearning for the warmth of our childhood beds, the calming voice of our parents, and the journey back to that enchanted world. Yet we must remember that even in fairylands of beauty and glitter, evil things creep about in false glamours. It may be the evil witch living in the gingerbread house or a beautiful sea nymph singing you into your watery grave." - April Segedi
This RUN comes signed by the artist along with an Original Artwork Letter of Provenance from 323East Gallery and 1xRUN.
ABOUT Jenna Colby:
Jenna Colby is a self taught artist who has always been creative through different mediums, but decided to focus on painting three years ago. Originally from Ohio, Jenna has traveled and lived in both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia, but has called Seattle home since 1999. Growing up in a small town Colby was always fascinated with cities and has been influenced by her travels and the people she has met and observed. “I make it a point to take note and assign a story to the passer by, giving each moment in time purpose and creating color.” After developing and beginning to show her work, Jenna came into contact with the work of artists like Mark Ryden and Yoshimoto Nara. Thinking back, she says, “Their work really moved me. It made me nervous, giddy . . . I’m not sure if there is a word for it. But after experiencing that feeling, I decided that is what I want to do to others. I want to make other people feel that way."
