Amelia Briggs is a local artist creating abstract, sculptural paintings that she identifies as “inflatables”. Most recently her studio research follows a collection of original fairy tales written by Hans Christian Anderson. Playlet focuses more specifically on the idea of play, the jumping off point to an invented world. Comprised of inflatables as well as textile pieces, this show references the toys that function as tools to create or invent abstract worlds. As such, Briggs explores the means by which a child can use a simple prop to enter a vast world of their own making.
Join the artist at Belmont University's Gallery 121, located in the Leu Center for the Visual Arts, for a closing reception and artist talk on January 23 from 4:30pm-6pm.
