Twist, Glide, Shine

Twist, Glide, Shine is a solo exhibition by artist Alisa Henriquez. In her most recent assemblages and collages, Henriquez combines digital images drawn from popular media culture, art history, and autobiographical sources with a host of materials including paint, resin, glitter, and synthetic hair and fur. Recurring motifs such as heavily mascaraed eyes, glossed lips, hair, and images of the body tap on encoded meanings and myths, conjuring ideas of female fertility, sexuality, and desire, albeit through an often media biased lens. At the same time, materials like glitter and paint alternatively function as acts of adornment or defacement when juxtaposed with photo-based imagery.
