Opening Reception – A. Muse vs. B. Muse
April 25, 2019
Art Gym Denver is excited to announce A. Muse vs. B. Muse by Robin Whatley in the Common Space Gallery with an opening reception April 25 from 5 – 8PM.
The artist’s muse has a rich history in the art canon. As viewers, however, we are normally only privy to the work created after a muse has been established. Robin Whatley’s new series of mixed media paintings, A. Muse vs. B. Muse, opens the door to the process of searching for her muse. In a conversation about her new series, Whatley explained some of the challenges and pleasures she has faced in this ongoing search. She has pushed her art-making process, allowing herself to play, explore and experiment. At times, this experimentation has yielded exciting results, while at other times, she has been left searching and exploring more. In her artist statement, Whatley says “as an artist, I am continually seeking my muse. Like trying to find the personal meaning of life, it can, at times, amuse me, but it also bemuses and slips elusively from me.”
