Art Talk-ANGELA FRALEIGH: SHADOWS SEARCHING FOR LIGHT

January 12, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Angela Fraleigh in conversation with curator Elizabeth Colleary. Angela’s Fraleigh’s site-specific installation, Shadows Searching for Light, is inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper (1882-1967) and his relationship with his wife, Josephine (Jo) Nivison Hopper (1883-1968). The installation is a continuation of Fraleigh’s most recent body of work, paintings which reimagine and recontextualize marginalized female figures by freeing them from their previous roles in art history.

Exploring the psychological space within Edward Hopper’s paintings, and the dynamics of the Hoppers’ two-artist marriage, Fraleigh focuses on the women who inhabit Hopper’s artwork – dramatic figures almost always modeled after Jo Nivison Hopper herself. In a vibrant transformation of the main gallery space at the Edward Hopper House, Fraleigh’s wall coverings are inspired by Jo’s bold palette and vigorous, animated brushwork. They provide a fitting backdrop for paintings that reflect Jo Hopper’s often isolated persona within the context of her relationship with her reclusive husband.
