High Hopes, +Projects, March 27th, 2010


Ashley Sloan longs for, yet is cynical of, youthful self-indulgence and ignorance. Sloan’s work portrays the moment when one involuntarily shakes off the shroud of stability and carelessness, to a reveal an adult life of hope, disappointment, and realistic worldview. Her drawings, paintings, and objects contain a subtle usage of humor, contradiction and delicateness to create a common understanding of this maturing process.
