June Press Release
Jala Studio: Yoga & Art is pleased to present a photography exhibit by local artist Amy Lovera. This enchanting show questions whether we are open to a little magic.
The Anatomy of Wishes
is an investigation into memory, longing and the taxonomy of wish-making. Famed 19th century botanist, Dr. Ida Hopewell, has discovered the illusive property in dandelions that allows wishes to come true. Artist Amy Lovera weaves this tale, performing as the fictional Ida and "documenting" her findings through photographs, fabricated botanical specimen and animation. With this absurdist attempt, Lovera seeks to empirically prove the physical existence of wishes.
Amy Lovera is a multimedia artist whose works explore the interplay between biographical and fictional narratives. Her work has been exhibited and published both nationally and internationally, including animation screenings at the Institute of Contemporary Art in Boston, a performance at the RISD Museum and a publication in Mexico’s Fine Art Photography journal, Luna Córnea. She has been awarded grants from Rhode Island’s State Council of The Arts and from the LEF Foundation. Amy is a Assistant Professor in the Art & Art History Department at Bridgwater State University. She holds an MFA in photography from Rhode Island School of Design and a certificate in collegiate teaching from Brown University.
