PRISMA Collective's 'Amethyst'

group show • August 5th - 27th, 2016

 

“Amethyst is a precious stone consisting of a purple variety of quartz, hearty, and born in the air pockets volcanos left behind. It is the last visible color at the end of the light spectrum, wavering on ultraviolet, an invisible unknown realm. It shares its name with an ancient goddess who stood up for herself against the toxic advances of an enemy. In the spiritual realm, it is known as opening place, where one’s intuition may grow. It can be carved, cut, colored, created and transformed, and this is what we aimed to do. Using the many facets of Amethyst in nature and throughout history, we created our own connections to its beautiful hue.” - PRISMA Collective artist, Christina Mrozik


Arch Enemy Arts is proud to announce that we’re bringing this year’s annual PRISMA Collective show to Philadelphia. The once a year exhibition features brand new works by Collective members, Ana Bagayan, Audrey Pongracz, Bec Winnel, Caitlin Hackett, Christina Mrozik, Daria Hlazatova, Edith Lebeau, Henrietta Harris, Jana Brike, Jeremy Hush, Kaspian Shore, Nom Kinnear King, Kelly Vivanco, Lilly Piri, N.C. Winters, Nicole Gustafsson, Rod Luff, and Sarah Joncas. For their new show, collective founder, Kaspian Shore knew he wanted to work with a color theme, something that would create a strong connection between the pieces on the wall and a homogenous atmosphere in the room. A Selection of colors was offered to the artists, and the final selection surprised him, “it wasn’t blue or red but purple that attracted everyone’s attention. And where do you see more facets and shades of purple, lilac, and violet than in the depth of an Amethyst, which became the basis for us to draw inspiration from.”
