Sex, Drugs and Butterflies

by Jennifer Hart

JAN 1 – FEB 28
Artist Jennifer Hart
Lexington, Kentucky artist Jennifer Hart taps personal transformations from her past traumas to challenge viewers to rediscover beauty in society’s discards and dehumanization. She leverages the tradition of quilting to creatively reimagine the use of textiles in a modern, innovative way.
“My work has remained focused on the transformation of dehumanization into beauty,” Jennifer says. “I unfortunately don’t have to look very far to find dehumanization. Whether it’s in pornography, old photo albums donated to the thrift store, old books or the opioid epidemic, I want to fight against it in the same way I transformed my own dehumanizing experience into something beautiful.”
Sex, Drugs and Butterflies is in the Featured gallery from January 1, 2022 – February 28, 2022. PLEASE NOTE: this exhibit contains adult content and may not be suitable for all audiences.
