M. Florine Démosthène presents a new body of work that continues her exploration of enigmatic human forms in collage and experimental sculpture. Démosthènes practice centers the Black female body in abstractions that engage themes of human transformation and collective experience. Rendered in translucent applications of paint, ink, and glitter on Mylar, the artists silhouetted figures are cut and assembled into amalgamations of bodies on voids of white. The resulting forms swirling, celestial beings that transcend immediate readings of identity encourage otherworldly readings of Démosthènes oeuvre. Demonstrating recent spiritual influences on the artists sculptural work following a period of living and working in Ghana, the works on view reference shrines of the Fon people of Benin and Ewe people of Ghana, merging aesthetic cultural traditions with cutting-edge 3D printing technology.
