Strewn, Hither, and Thither | Claire Ashley

Exploding the possibilities of painting, Ashley’s inflatable sculptures look for a space for paint to live and breath as tattooed skins on hybrid bodies. In this exhibition, kinetic boulders float and lumber throughout the gallery, irreverent and humorous. The works are both absurdist performances and spaces for play, each entangled with curiosities as numerous as expandable foam, aliens, cake frosting, wrinkled skin, and exhalation.
. All are welcome to a free, informal celebration on Sunday, November 10th 4-6 pm. HUB Gallery is ope

In conjunction with the opening of the show, a live performance will take place-12 students will inhabit Ashley’s sculptures and perform her work Hot Rocks, wherein the artist speculates on the future evolution of our species, whether on or off planet.
