Amie Oliver: Angels and Infidels

July 10-October 2, 2005

By recycling classical forms and employing distressed materials, Amie Oliver creates a mixed-media exhibition exploring the history of language, symbols and material culture. Modern icons and classical forms are appropriated into a contemporary context with Oliver’s distinctive aesthetic.

Oliver has exhibited her work from New Orleans to Maine in the United States and in Paris and the United Kingdom. She has worked at the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY, the Vermont Studio Center, the Glasgow School of Art in Scotland, the Cite’ des Arts Internationale in Paris and the Virginia Center for Creative Arts in Sweet Briar, Virginia.
