This is a Public Reception held in the 808 Gallery on October 14th, 2017 from 3:00 pm — 5:00 pm. The Exhibition will be held in the gallery from September 15 — December 3, 2017.

Claire Ashley’s large-scale inflatable objects combine painting, sculpture, installation, and performance to defy a singular definition. The coded title of the exhibition translates to “Crazy Female Foreigners Alive and Kicking” referencing Ashley’s Scottish nationality and alluding to the instability of global politics, and the temporal existence of her sculptures inhabiting and moving through space. In her debut solo exhibition in New England, Ashley offers a humorous critique of art world trends and expectations of the human body. Her vessels are boldly colorful on the exterior while supported on the interior solely by air. Ashley’s objects exist at an intersection between imposing yet vulnerable, bloating yet sagging, while combining painterly characteristics of Abstract Expressionism, the playfulness of large scale Pop art, and psychedelic spectrum of Day-Glo fluorescent colors. The exhibition will include approximately thirty inflatables varying in scale and thirty small paper pieces.
