Saturday January 16th, 2016
10 AM – 2 PM SLT
The Artist will be in attendance
Too Many Flowers is an installation that revolves around the topics of body autonomy, female sexual violence, gendered imbalances of power, the subjugation of women, rape culture, and abortion.
To commemorate the upcoming 43rd anniversary of the landmark Roe vs. Wade decision (January 22nd 1973) Odyssey is proud to open “Too Many Flowers” – an installation by New Media and Visual Artist Nebulosus Severine.
“Too Many Flowers” is a provocative work that examines the condition of female sexuality in the modern world. Beautiful and provocative, this installation (like much of Severine’s online work) is not simply artwork that one views – it is an exploratory journey to be experienced.
Join us on Saturday January 16th from 10 AM to 2 PM SLT to celebrate the official opening on Odyssey.
This installation was most recently presented as part of the mixed reality international group show Circle Jerks, which ran from 14-28 November at the Minuit Art Gallery in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia and on Odyssey.
TRIGGER WARNING: THIS INSTALLATION CONTAINS SUBJECT MATTER THAT SOME VISITORS MAY FIND DISTURBING, ESPECIALLY THOSE WHO ARE SURVIVORS OF SEXUAL VIOLENCE.
Visual artist who has worked with acrylic & oil painting, ink drawings on paper, digital composition, printmaking, and New Media art. Works in virtual/New Media art under the name Nebulosus Severine. Completed an AA with distinction in Fine Arts at Asnuntuck Community College in Enfield CT in 2015. Has also studied at the University of Hartford (West Hartford, CT) and Manchester Community College (Manchester, CT).
My art, an extension of my consciousness, is continuously evolving; it aims to elicit a visceral response in the viewer or participant. I am quite particular in my use of color to capture emotion & mood; I create what I feel & perceive through observation and introspection.
Much of my recent work has been created in the virtual world of Second Life, where I have been exhibiting since 2005. I am drawn to New Media arts and to virtual communities for their groundbreaking experimental and interactive potential.
