I recruited artist Ashley Macomber for an exhibition with Proyectos Monclova in Mexico City at a former popsicle factory. Transforming the space into a gallery was it's own project, and the Mexican adventures with Ashley in D.F. will never be forgotten. Unfortunately better shots of the work have not been saved.
Ashley Macomber's work reveals the complexities of human relationships and the fundamental entanglement of power, vulnerability and love. Working in painting, video and sculpture, the artist creates a web of associations between emotion and perception, influence and intuition. With an intricate hand and a relentless imagination, Macomber delves into the fantastical patterns of the natural world.
Ashley Macomber lives and works in Los Angeles. She has exhibited her work at Kavi Gupta Gallery, IL, Marianne Boesky Gallery, NY, Deste Foundation Center for Contemporary Art, Athens, Greece, Creative Time, NY, Elizabeth Dee Gallery, NY, New Image Art, LA, Clementine Gallery and White Box, NY.
Macomber has also been included in several publications including the new Tokion book Revisionaries, and ANP Quarterly Issue #9.
