'PORTRAITS AND ROPES' BY APRIL STREET

23.2.13

hOLYhOLYFASHION is proud to present April Street, the artist studied at The Art Institute of Chicago and in central Italy learning traditional bronze casting.  She currently lives and works in Los Angeles.
'Portraits and Ropes' are a fictional familial construct that overlap, rebel against, and conform to their relatives and their imagined lovers through body language, compositions of movement, and color deposits that create a "generational aesthetic". 
The gravitational configurations evoke ideas of skin and duration, posturing and adaptation, packaging and labor, as well as action paintings' relationship to feminism. Street's palette is plucked from fantasy art and impressionist landscapes combined with skin mimicking textiles as the paintings drape walls.
