"Shapeshifters" opens Jan. 21, Phoenix, AZ

Modified Arts presents: Shapeshifters
an exhibition of works by Ingrid Restemayer and Christy Puetz
Opening Reception with the artists: Friday, January 21st, 2011, 6-9pm
Exhibition runs January 21st through February 12th, 2011

In an exciting new collaboration at Modified Arts, artists Ingrid Restemayer and Christy Puetz explore issues of implied symbolism, identity and self in the exhibition Shapeshifters. Through the stimulating interaction of Ingrid’s mixed media stitching and Christy’s meticulously beaded sculptural installation, the artists express the human nature to assign meaning and assume roles. Together the work creates a paradoxical, atmosphere alluding to the artists’ experiences of changing from one self to another and adapting to culture and context.
