ATHICA@Ciné presents an exhibition of new works by Atlanta-based artist Alice Stone-Collins, whose intricate hand-painted collaged pieces ask questions of tradition and to the ties that bind. Her work highlights the tensions between the mundane, the everyday, and the apparent dead. An MFA graduate in Studio Art from the University of Tennessee, Stone-Collins is a faculty member at Georgia Gwinnett College.
The land where our home sits was once the home of the Creek Indians, who for over hundreds and thousands of years built villages along the Chattahoochee River. There are no remaining Creek Indian homes in our neighborhood. No Creek villages in Metro Atlanta. And no more evidence of the grand Chattahoochee Mounds which were destroyed during the construction of Six Flags, an amusement park.
Home, it has been said, is where the heart is. But what lies at the heart’s center? What do these contested spaces reveal? — Alice Stone-Collins
This is Stone-Collins’ first solo exhibition for ATHICA, for which she was selected by the ATHICA Exhibitions Committee to be featured in ATHICA’s Solo Duo Trio series, which provides opportunities for individual artists to exhibit their work at ATHICA and its partner location, ATHICA@Ciné.
