We are delighted to reopen Jorgensen Gallery after a twenty-three-month hiatus with Ashanté Kindle’s A Dream Transformed.
Inspired by the natural and styled s-curl waves formed in Black hair, A Dream Transformed uses abstract waveforms to create a visual language that celebrates the beauty and history of Black culture. According to Kindle, the abstract art is “a space of freedom to recreate without boundaries.”
Kindle resides in Hartford, CT and is currently an MFA candidate in the School of Fine Arts at the University of Connecticut. She received her BFA from Austin Peay State University in Clarksville, TN. She has exhibited at Fridman Gallery (New York), Red Arrow Gallery (Tennessee) and Finlandia University (Michigan), among many others.
