With a groundbreaking roster comprised entirely of female artists, the fairy-tale inspired group exhibition features over 40 artists from around the world. Since opening at 323East Gallery in 2010, the exhibition has resonated with collectors, fellow artists, the media and fans alike for providing a platform for female artists to explore the age old tradition of fairy tales and create thought provoking works that question the values they intend to instill from a very young age.

For the latest incarnation of Glass, Cinder & Thorns, curator April Armand has assembled her most ambitious group of local and internationally recognized artists to date, pulling some of the best and brightest in contemporary art in a myriad of mediums.

“This is the largest and most diverse group of artists that we have had for Glass Cinder & Thorns. While there are many returning artists, we’ve also invited quite a few new artists to participate as well. The work that has been arriving at the gallery has been pretty incredible. I am so impressed by everyone’s skill level and their ability to put their own unique spin on this varied theme. This will be an exhibition not to be missed,” Armand said.

In her curator’s statement Armand elaborates that we all know these seemingly innocent bedtimes stories often had evil lurking within their pages and issued the challenge to each artist to reinvent their favorites. The end result is that the more adult themes are highlighted in many of the artists’ pieces, with an emphasis on strong female perspectives, as 40+ female artists from around the globe have tackled iconic female-centric fairy tales including Cinderella, Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, Alice In Wonderland, The Little Mermaid, Sleeping Beauty and countless others, each putting a modern spin on these childhood classics.

“The older we get, the more we realize how wonderful being an innocent child can be, losing ourselves in fantasies of white horses, magic, and dazzling princesses. What Disney failed to mention is that The Little Mermaid dies, multiple suitors defiled Sleeping Beauty, and The Wolf ate Grandma. Horrible things happen everyday, but we all sometimes wish for a time and place where life is simpler, yearning for the warmth of our childhood beds, the calming voice of our parents, and the journey back to that enchanted world,” Armand said challenging some of today’s finest female artists.

About the Artist

Location: Washington Heights, New York

Indie184, born in Rio Piedras, Puerto Rico, is a graffiti artist and graphic designer hailing from Washington Heights, New York City. Growing up all over NYC she began to participate in the graffiti culture in 2001. Determined to express herself to the world through art, she withdrew from business college to teach herself how to sew, paint and produce graphic design. Influenced by all things colorful, happy and sexy, she is known for her classic New York simple yet playful feminine graffiti style infused with exuberant bold colors bursting with hearts, stars and bubbles. You can find her graffiti pieces in the streets from the South Bronx to Oslo.

Graffiti is the lexicon of the street. As far back as the stone age, the element of leaving ones mark, has been communicated through the walls of our environment. Indie184’s transformative approach to graffiti awakens the spirit of the contemporary art world. Los Angeles, Paris, and New York have been host to her last three solo exhibitions over the past year. Her drive to create art both on the streets and in galleries, has taken her around the world from Bronx to Berlin, over the last decade. A burgeoning phenomenon in graffiti, Indie’s work strikes balance between the energy of the streets, and the power of femininity. The imagery, color, texture, and subject define a level of clarity in her application of art to canvas, concrete, and clothing. The use of aerosols, plaster, paste, acrylic paint, and paper give the viewer a wide exchange of the media reflected in the traditional graffiti setting, re-imagined into wall art intended for use in a nontraditional graffiti setting. The art of branding a particular location has evolved from nuisance to renaissance, and laymen and fine art collector alike converge in a space of somewhere between here and there. This dreamy element of romanticized figurative collaging averse to the elements of raw graffiti, all delicately packaged in beautiful messages told through color and words.

The collision of thought process and application express a voice screaming from the roof tops that, she has arrived. For 13 years now, the Dominican-American, New York native has been propagating her message on the streets she calls home and walls worldwide, she calls her own. Indie’s work has been featured commercially from best-selling video games like Rockstar Games’ Grand Theft Auto IV to premium brands like MAC cosmetics. She has been a contributing artist in exhibitions and auctions worldwide and an outspoken voice in the street art community of New York City. Her place in the archives of the contemporary voice of street art is fostering a growth that is quickly taking her to the top of her profession. Her collaborative work with world renowned female street artists like Swoon, Fafi, and Aiko put her in a class of the future of female street art influencers. Her rise does not come without hard work. As entrepreneur, artist and mother, Indie is the definition of modern women living in the renaissance of an art form that is part of the vocabulary of a generation.
