Women & Their Work Gallery says
Opening Reception: Thursday, November 19, 6 to 8pm.
The artist will speak at the opening and there will be a performance.

Alyssa Taylor Wendt presents an ongoing exploration into the nature of desire and the symbiotic relationship between the person as a subject of longing and the yearning we project upon objects as symbols of aspiration and meaning. Using sculpture, installation, photography and performance, Wendt challenges our own understanding of comfort and sexuality with several new bodies of work. The shamanistic UrGear pieces transform a variety of individuals into warriors, whose portraits display varying levels of transgression in their personal journeys with gender and power. She uses her signature theatrical cosmology, dark humor and fetish objects to create a visceral, mysterious world that questions how we process our multitudinous desires.
