For my Art visit I decided to go and see Ashley Macias's show over at Palabra in Phoenix. It's located off of central and Fillmore. The artist is a friend of my friends who hosted my gallery over at The Lab Phoenix. I was guided over there on Saturday November 8th for the Grand Avenue art festival. I was immediately drawn to the space which is usually a hair studio and all of the tools and props were pushed to the side in order to make the art a visual statement. The artist Ashley is a painter who draws and paints these elaborate pieces of either skeletons or bird like creatures that resemble the human anatomy but beautifully executed. I was blown away by her dedication to the detail. The whole gallery itself was simple and the lighting really did a great job in terms of illuminating each piece. Her art was moving and really made you get lost in the beauty. I was specifically drawn to the piece shown below which is a wonderful example of the rest of her work. Again, as stated before her art is an elegant way to make you think about the human body and how we are all connected to nature and time.
