Title: Between the Leaves by Anjelica Colliard
Artist: Anjelica Colliard
Dates: Nov 3rd - Dec 29th
Time: 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm


OAKLAND, CA:  Opening November 3rd during the First Friday’s Art Murmur, Between the Leaves is a multi-sensory installation of the artist’s signature “imaginary jungles” that takes the artist’s drawings off the page and into space. As an artist primarily working in printed matter, this installation is a refreshing expansion of Colliard’s strikingly sensual line work, and a deliberate invitation to the viewer to wander through her invented landscapes.

Between the Leaves reminds us that the creation of inner worlds can be a vital step in reconnecting with our animal wildness. As technology encroaches on the real in a flurry of image-driven numbness, Colliard will create a topography of temptation–to touch, to feel, to look long and hard at our surroundings and what makes them beautiful in real time. Frisky fauna and over-sized flora will mix with abstracted lines and shapes to envelop you in an Edenic cocoon of pre-verbal sensations.

About the Artist: Anjelica Colliard is a California native who studied drawing and printmaking at University of California, Berkeley. She now lives and works in Oakland, California, where she continues to make art, as well as monitor at Max’s Garage Press, participate in local fairs, and co-organize the Good Omen Market, a makers’ market featuring the work of local emerging artists. Her work interprets the intersection of nature and sexuality using natural plant forms and human figures to create imaginary plant-filled worlds.
