DWELLiNG in MY SouL//////Black, the color

A two-person show of Paintings and Prints by Colleen Shelton and Charlotte Ghiorse a.k.a. House of ChoCLeT. Loosely associated riffs on the comfort of the color Black and our tribal experience of identifying with and being connected to our dwelling places. The Business of Adorning ourselves with our home, and wearing our home in the outfit. Identity as a form of protection. Subject to personal interpretation. Colleen’s Prints and Paintings of Masks are very personal and playful images relating to identity. She uses her own image as a template. Charlotte’s Paintings are about being a wandering soul and feeling like she doesn’t belong anywhere, as well as Voyeurism, Identity, belonging to a place and Day Dreaming, the void… and the safety of the color Black.
