Nemophilist: Bride of the Wild | Art Show Opening Reception

horizontal JGC

For June the imperfecta art & design gallery presents a solo show featuring Portland-based artist Jennifer Gillia Cutshall.
The show opens on Saturday June 8, with a reception (5-7pm, with wine tastings by Corcilla Cellars), and runs through June 29. Gallery hours are 11am to 5 pm Tuesday through Saturday.

In this exhibit, NEMOPHILIST: Bride of the Wild, the artist mixes a variety of media to pay homage to the female figurehead and the natural world, because, as she states, “the link between the two is inextricable to me.”  The movement toward expressing universal struggles and loss “mirror the plight of ecosystems and symbolic motifs of hands, wings, crowns, nests, angels, brides” – all themes that are recurrent in her work. “I am intertwined (or married) to the wilder parts of my inner voice” – Jennifer says – and “I enjoy aspects of clarity within the chaos of the psychic river that carves pathways through the forest.”
A nemophilist is someone who loves the forest. For this exhibition, Jennifer Gillia Cutshall symbolically refers to the word “forest” to describe the lush dreamscape that haunts her psyche. Intuition has always played a role in her art process, echoing her subconscious and her point of view as an empath. As the artist explains: “I consider all artists to be empaths (of sorts), tuning in to the world with a unique sensitivity.”

Jennifer’s interest in the artist as empath extends beyond the brush, linking back to her paternal grandmother: a NYC psychic that, even if she never hung a neon sign to attract business, became highly sought after (by famous entertainers and politicians).

All artworks will be released on the gallery online catalog on opening day and will be available for purchase. The gallery ships globally. Attend the opening reception on June 8, 5-7pm, to meet the artist and enjoy wine pours by Corcilla Cellars. More details at http://www.imperfecta.xyz
