Expressions is an exhibition curated by and displaying the work of interns at Art in FLUX Harlem: Daniella Carter, Dykeisha Hill, Elina Stella, Erin Murphy, Jacqueline Jones, Kachine Moore, Kathy Veliz, Ken Weisensee, Marie Demple, Raven Willis, and Rebecca Alvarez. Each artist contributes an image with the central focus of expression. When joined together the images create an introduction to the vast ever-changing forms of human emotion.
Focusing on the portrait by way of painting and photography, the exhibit gives light to the variances of expression through the eye of different individuals. The artists have based their work for this exhibition on the idea of capturing and embodying human emotion. The show emphasizes the effect of expression and how it can influence someone’s initial perception of another individual. Whether it is read from a smile, eyes, pose, or through a gut feeling, expression is an innate form of communication. Through drawing, painting, collage and photography the interns collaborated to present their own lens to convey the emotional state of an individual.
