LeSo Gallery, located at 1527 Starr Avenue in Toledo, presents Momentary, a two artist exhibition featuring the works of Crystal Gale Phelps and Amber Valentine.
Valentine's work is a series of quadruple exposures created through traditional use of film and darkroom techniques. Her work fuses incidental imagery into a singular complex and saturate image, often with infinite depth.
Phelps work explores the depths of her own experience and the greater dialogue of death through life, memory, and reclamation. Through use of blood, ink, dirt, and thread, Phelps expresses herself in line and gesture on the paper.
These artists compel the viewer to sink deeper, either into the image itself or into our complex thoughts and emotions. Explore this exhibition of thoughtful works and take hold of something meaningful, however momentary.
