WORK BY ANI COLLIER TO BE EXHIBITED AT ART TORONTO 2017
GAINESVILLE, Fla, Sept. 20, 2017 – Black C Art Gallery is pleased to announce that two works by Ani Collier from her NY Series will be shown at Vellum Magazine’s booth at Art Toronto this October.
The two digital collages, Architexture (2013) and Converging Perspectives (2014), were selected for exhibition by Vellum Magazine Editor Stephanie Young and are an important representation of Collier’s overall body of work. After retiring from her career as a ballet dancer, Collier took up life as an artist behind the lens. In her artist statement, Collier declared a fascination with cities, stating that “although a photograph records a single moment in time, the collages I make tell stories… I feel that through digital photography and manipulation, I am able to choreograph again – albeit virtually. In a way, I am still dancing; only now, I dance with my images.”
Founded in 2000, Art Toronto is Canada’s international contemporary and modern art fair and is one of the most important annual events in the city.
