Amy Boone-McCreesh | Heritage Aesthetic

Hamiltonian Gallery is proud to present Heritage Aesthetic, a new body of work by artist Amy Boone-McCreesh.

In her debut solo exhibition as a Hamiltonian Fellow, Amy Boone-McCreesh investigates the visual language of ceremonies and rites of passage while exploring themes of transformation and transcendence. Boone-McCreesh's vibrant cut-paper, fabric and found object installations are a pastiche of cultural heritage, adopting material cues from tribal ephemera, Middle Eastern ornamentation, and American Indian vestments. Her deconstructed global aesthetic appropriates the embellishment associated with celebrations from across the globe, speaking broadly to human accomplishment, customs and the universal tradition of decoration. Aiding in a deeper investigation of the artist's visual inspirations, Heritage Aesthetic will feature a reading room containing images and books that inform the work in the exhibition.
