Ro2 Art is proud to present a thin place, a solo exhibition featuring new works by artist Krista Chalkley. The show will run from April 17 through May 15, 2021. The exhibition will open with a reception at Ro2 Art the Cedars located at 1501 S Ervay St, Dallas, TX and will take place from 12-5 PM.
Through transparent textiles and voids, Krista Chalkley creates passageways to spaces where malice is replaced with reverence.
a thin place is in reference to a mysterious realm found in ancient Irish folklore, geographic areas where the veil between realities is thin. This “thinness” holds for latent possibilities of ways to relate to each other beyond past and current sociopolitical strife. Softness in texture and hue are aesthetic critiques of rigid thinking. Layers and gradations act as subtle metaphors for the fluidity of gender and the social construction of identity. Through meticulously worked pellucid fibers, Chalkley creates portals to invite viewers into this realm of potential.
