The exhibition “Fragments from my Past” represents paintings and sculptures – that were created by the artist in the period 1994 – 2006. Licata is most known for his paintings executed on crumpled-up canvases and on three-dimensional surfaces. These works force themselves away from flatness and the confines of a frame, directly into the viewer’s space.
Girl Talk is a presentation of photographs, paintings, film, jewelry and quilted pieces exploring the themes of imposed identity, beauty, tradition and self-definition. The title of the show is inspired by the song “Girl Talk” by Dakota Staton. “Her rendition of “Girl Talk” reminds us of the importance of women sharing stories and telling histories. The history of women in this nation is comprised of a multitude of stories, struggles and successes.” Willis declares.
