Art From Unconsciousness
By Summer Olsson [ Wed Aug 31 2011 4:48 PM ]
In the Jungian theory of psychiatry, the anima is the female element or inner personality in the collective unconscious, and the manifestation of feminine attributes in men. It is also the title of Archer Dougherty’s solo show opening at Stranger Factory on Friday. In Anima she focuses what she calls her “pop surrealistic visions” around strong female themes. She says the characters she portrays are poised somewhere in limbo between childhood and the adult world, trying to tackle internal demons and outside influences. Figures of women surrounded by bright colors, theatrical details and whimsical—and somehow ominous—creatures mark her work.
Opens Friday, Sept. 2, 6 to 9 p.m.
Runs through Oct. 2
