WMAC - REM

Oct 1-5, 8-12, 15-19, 22-26, and 29-31, 2019 / Nov 1-2, 2019 / All Day

Calendar: Exhibit

More so than usual, Spartanburg visual artist Brandi Tucker will give patrons a peek into her mind when she exhibits her latest collection of work --  Rapid Eye Movement (REM) -- at West Main Artists Co-op in October 2019.

            This exhibit of more than 20 pieces of artwork will open Tuesday, Oct. 1, and will end Saturday, Nov. 2. It will be available for free public viewing Tuesday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A free and public reception will be held on Thursday, Oct. 17, 5-9 p.m., during the city’s monthly ArtWalk.

            “This exhibit is a bit of a departure from my previous work, which is usually colorful and pleasant,” the 37-year-old artist said. “Although I continued to use a colorful palette, some of the subject matter in various pieces is quite dark and disturbing.  My art has always been my form of therapy, allowing me to release my built up emotions and frustrations. I found at times, the recreation of my nightmares difficult. Composing my deepest fears and phobias into art was quite a process and an emotional journey. This body of work is a glimpse into the mind of an artist.  It portrays intimate snapshots of my psyche. I hope this exhibit sparks curiosity, takes the viewer on a voyage of feeling and invokes self-reflection.”
