Christoph Ruckhaberle. Nacht, 2004. From the de la Cruz Collection
The second in a series of exhibitions curated and organized by the de la Cruz Collection to benefit the students of Nova Southeastern University, “Pink Powder” will run concurrently with Women’s Appreciation Month.
“Pink Powder,” brings together a group of artists whose work addresses the female form with an unapologetic intensity. Imagery varying from the quiet and ponderous to the raw and rebellious subvert the traditional role of the female muse within the canons of art history, literature, and popular culture. Works ranging from painting and photography to neon and fiber-based works express an openness and agency towards action; The viewer is confronted with fantasies of revisionist history, personal or otherwise, which unabashedly expose the romantic, self-indulgent and at times morbid desires of the female subject. Artists in the exhibition: Kaye Donachie, Tracey Emin, Naomi Fisher, Birgit Megerle, Ana Mendieta, and Christoph Ruckhaberle.
