Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, by Stacey Holloway

FLORENCE-Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts will be showing an exhibition of works by artist Stacey Holloway from August 5th through September 23rd. The artist will be available for a “Meet and Greet” on Sunday, August 7th from 2 p.m.-3 p.m. Stacey Holloway is an installation-based artist and sculptor residing in Birmingham, Alabama. She received her MFA from the University of Minnesota, her BFA from Herron School of Art and Design, before becoming the Assistant Professor of Sculpture at the University of Alabama at Birmingham. Stacey is an active national mixed media artist, sculptor, and fabricator that works within a variety of media.

 

Of her work, she says, “I am a visual storyteller”. She explains, “Similar to Aesop, my interests lie in the animal realm and by using specific animal attributes to explore how our formative processes make up who we might become, or who we are attempting to become. Animal forms, architectural drafting and installations become the place for metaphors and narratives of uncertainty and longing”.

 

“I’m often drawn to items that have a story to tell. My mixed media installations are created from a series of parts, collections and recycled objects that are appropriated and combined with traditional carving, woodworking, casting, and fabricated structures.

Similar to Surrealist artists, my hyper-exaggerated constructions investigate the subconscious and the balance of instinct and ethics”.

 

The Kennedy-Douglass Center for the Arts is free and open to the public Monday – Friday from 9-4 and on Sundays from 1-4. The art center is located at 217 E. Tuscaloosa St. Florence, AL and can be reached at 256-760-6379.
