Brea Souders

(via pause to begin) Brea Souders is having her first solo show, Time Between, running from September 6 - October 12 at the Abrons Arts Center, Henry Street Settlement, in lower Manhattan. The opening reception is Saturday, September 13, from 6:30 - 8:30pm.

From her artist statement:
I’m interested in the way superstitions reflect the human urge for story telling and our need for control in an uncertain world. They act as portals to a childhood sensibility, and can transform an ordinary scene into a mysterious tableau, rich with new meaning. While researching this project, I found that superstitions morph from place to place, but certain themes remain constant. I became interested in what these themes can tell us about our fears and desires, and how they shape our psychology from an early age. Using both meditated and candid photography, I look to capture the whimsy and tension that superstitions evoke in us, and to illuminate the scope of our collective imaginings.
