WOMEN’S CAUCUS FOR ART Florida
Black & White Show
November 12, 2023-December 22, 2023
Black and White, the newest exhibition of the Women’s Caucus for Art, Florida Chapter examines the metaphoric and physical nature of opposites. Attracting, repelling, and completing one another in a mind-body connection.
The metaphoric meaning of Black and White’s layers are complex and vary with cultural viewpoints.
As a societal critique, black and white references racial and economic divides. As a visual construct, seeing in black and white is seeing with unambiguous clarity or with the inflexibility of intolerance.
Please note that shades of gray may also be included in the execution of this project.
The dynamic physical polarity represents eternal struggles between light and dark, day and night, good and evil, right, and wrong…death and dry bones. White stands for innocence, purity, and loyalty, black for mourning and despair, the powerful unseen, the hidden and the sensual.
The Eastern concepts of revelation and enlightenment, beyond duality, are associated with the merging of radiant white light with the mystery and drama of the black eternal void.
We invite the viewer to determine the dynamic between the meaning infused by the WCA artists, their own cultural filters, and the interface between works in the show.
You, the observer, will get a feel for the artist’s intent in presenting an opportunity to examine the metaphoric and physical nature of opposites.
