fragile not found

Please join us for the opening reception of Fragile Not Found, works by Molly Hassler, Anika Kowalik, & LaNia Sproles! Friday November 1st from 6PM to 9PM at Woodland Pattern Book Center.

About the artists:

Molly Hassler is Bachelor of Fine Arts graduate from University of Wisconsin – Milwaukee with an emphasis in Fibers and a Certificate in Community Arts. She is an interdisciplinary artist using large – scale sculptural fibers works, printing and dying techniques, and community arts engagement to communicate ideas surrounding queerness, nostalgia (or even nostalgia for nostalgia), and family.

Anika Kowalik was born and raised out of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. While growing up, Kowalik had the experience of living in many neighborhoods in Milwaukee, exposing them to the unique way that racism historically has shaped the city today. After attending Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design for their BFA in printmaking ‘17; Kowalik would utilize the language of printmaking and expand outside of its traditional two dimensional form. They use their personal experiences as a young black femme to explore the depths of generational and systematic oppression to create works that record their own history. As a person who is a part of a marginalized group, it is vital to unpack the truth through many facets of documentation. Kowalik finds it easier to communicate these personal experiences through materiality, expanding beyond the physical body we commonly search for and traditional forms of expression.

LaNia Sproles grew up in the segregated city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin and graduated with a BFA from Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. She devotes most of her time conducting research on the philosophies of self perception, queer and feminist theories, and inherent racial dogmas; while also examining the contemporary works’ of Laylah Ali, Kara Walker, and poet Warsan Shire. The combination of printmaking and drawing inspires her to challenge these concepts and to push beyond the traditional expectations of not only the figure but printmaking itself. Through collage and assemblage she strives to conduct work that pays homage to imagery free from the barriers of social constructs and honest in its vulnerability.
