June 8 - Aug. 5, 2018
Emerging artist Mattie Hinkley focuses on queer bodies and physicality in her solo exhibition, Body Work, at the Iridian Gallery. Exploring gender identity and the fluidity of sexuality, Hinkley’s ink and graphite illustrations feature large, muscular, seemingly female-bodied characters placidly engaged with their environment. Some characters are alone, some are engaged in heteronormative or traditionally feminine activities, and some take up submissive, queer, or masculine roles. They are caught candidly, in the comfort of their bodies, rather than in a performative state.
Opening reception, Friday June 8, 7 - 9 PM
in the Iridian Gallery at Diversity Richmond
