Caitlin Cherry – Etherpaint


  • The Anderson 907 1/2 Franklin Street Richmond, VA 23284 (map)

OPENING RECEPTION: Friday, September 7, 6:00 - 9:00 PM

Etherpaint features figurative paintings that explore the solarization and inversion effect of Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor technology that occurs with a malfunctioning or tilted screen. This image distortion that is furthered in the painting process becomes a metaphor for the overexposure and colonization of black female bodies that persists in popular culture, music, and pornography.
