Alire’s elegant and subtly hued gravure prints are always a little gritty and sometimes controversial. In a nutshell, her work deals with gender issues, sexual orientation, and identity. She often combines or juxtaposes connected or disconnected images in a way that provoke or amuse the viewer. Having recently spend time inParisandBudapest, this new body of work features house entrances, store fronts and street scenes overlaid with pop icons and other unexpected details.
Demonstration during the reception: Alire will demonstrate the gravure process from 6:30 –7 PM.
