would move me more than glitter

would move me more than glitter brings together the work of Priscilla Beck, Liam James, Nadege Janon-Philippe and Amber Koroluk-Stephenson to examine interpretations of the ‘artist’s muse’.

This exhibition aims to capture potency and poetry of the muse, examining interplays between figuration and abstraction, desires and devotion, sexuality and objectification, public and private, intimacy and immediacy, substance and futility.

The works respond to fragmented states of meaning and understanding through equivocal visual dialogs, playing on the social, cultural, institutional and hierarchical understandings of the muse as object and subject in fiction, history, mythology and popular culture.
