NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale presents Kathia St. Hilaire: Immaterial Being Exhibition
February 1 @ 10:00 am - 9:00 pmFree
Black History Month Event
NSU Art Museum Fort Lauderdale presents the first solo museum exhibition of South Florida artist Kathia St. Hilaire (b.1995, West Palm Beach, FL).
St. Hilaire’s work portrays tender images of family gatherings, children at play, celestial bodies, scenes of death, and distinct Haitian iconography. Her visual language is enhanced by the ornate, textured surfaces on which these images appear. The distinct constructions are composed through a lattice framework of linoleum panels, sewn together to form quilt-like formations resembling ceremonial Haitian Vodun flags.
St. Hilaire refers to her signature surface making technique as reduction relief printing. This laborious crafting method combines an array of materials such as cosmetics, textiles, detritus, jewelry, enamels and metals, which together form a haptic, abstract collage. These intricate and ethereal backgrounds become the stage for the artist’s figurative imagery.
