|You are invited to the August 1st opening of D. DelReverda-Jenning’s exhibition Caught Between The Sun And Heaven at Gallery 924.
DelReverda-Jennings utilizes a variety of natural materials including fiber, paint, precious metals, and more to create figurative sculpture, paintings, and installation work. Her latest work celebrates women, depicting females who are in a state of self-discovery, insight, mystery, empowerment and affirmation, while exploring the complexities of biracial / multi-ethnic / multiracial-cultural identity. Many references are obtained from spiritual and religious histories that have aesthetic traditions based in the African Diaspora. She uses identity, women’s issues, the female body, and the power it employs to investigate colorism and other stereotypical assumptions still found in contemporary culture. Pervasive concepts in her work come from a range of personal influences including traditional and original personal symbolism which has evolved out of multi-racial and multi-cultural perspective reflecting African, American, African-American, Latin/Taino, and Native Alaskan cultures.
D. DelReverda-Jennings is a 2003 Arts Council Creative Renewal Arts Fellow.
