Really excited to be sharing with you my exhibition, The Side Profile at Xpace Cultural Centre! I’ve been working on this series for over 2 years and it will finally be shown altogether for the first time. Come celebrate with me at the opening reception Oct 28/16 at 7pm.
“In the Side Profile Series, Shantel Miller explores complexities within representations of blackness. In a suite of eight oil paintings, Miller portrays young, black men in side profile, as a method to re-contextualize and bring into focus the black body – revealing that each subject depicted is replete with individual characteristics, vulnerabilities and truths. This body of work crafts a space for exploring notions of the viewer, viewing and the viewed.”
