WE ARE: An artist collective, that began as an organization that put on exhibitions in pop-up art spaces, in Atlanta, GA.
StrangeMatterATL’s mission is to foster more collaboration between “women” creatives by building a stronger network/community and to make work that is challenging the scene and keeping “women” relevant in the discussion of art.
Origin: Colored goop and wood pulp can bring life to many-eyed women who occupy flat, patterned realms. Composite beings – part woman, part plant, part reptile or mollusk – can articulate their bodies through line, mineral and ink. A blackened brush can chronicle a dinosaur woman’s nocturnal meanderings. Pigment suspended in oil on wooden board can document a magic woman’s fire lit gathering. StrangeMatterATL has become a coalition of warriors who manipulate all forms of matter – paint, ink, graphite, canvas, panel, and paper – to extend their strange vision with the world and to unite others who share affinity for their vision.
