Flor Ameria

OPENING RECEPTION:

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION:

Clamp Light Artist Studios and Gallery is proud to present Flor Ameira's inaugural solo exhibition at Clamp Light Artist Studios. 

Flor uses photography and performance to challenge internal and external norms for women, their bodies, and how they relate to societal expectations. Exploring the constant embrace and rejection of her relationship with her surroundings, Flor uses physical distortions and restrictions of the body that reference conflicted internal feelings, which result in an inability to recognize the woman behind the fabric. Even though her portraits may seem disturbing at first glance, Ameira’s use of color, light, and gestures suggest beauty within the constrained.

The Prettiest Part of Rumination is composed of ongoing thoughts the artist might have at a time with no apparent solution or execution. Beauty standards, constant embrace and rejection, relationships and memory form part of the Ameira's work. This exhibition is solution itself.
