'Monstro, Monstras, Monstrat' by Nethery Wylie

Join us for a riveting new show by Nethery Wylie at The Modbo in which the artist explores iconic images that are both durable yet ironically changeable.

The Modbo presents April’s First Friday: Monstro, Monstras, Monstrat by Nethery Wylie. The show runs through Friday, April 26.

About the show:

St. Francis—Il Povarello—he who sought to “follow barefoot the barefoot Christ”—sells for about $87 at better garden stores in the US. In Monstro, Mostras, Monstrat, Nethery, Wylie explores iconic images that are both durable yet ironically changeable.

Francis of Assisi’s personal turning point was embracing the leper who disgusted him. Clare of Assisi wished to follow Francis into the world but had to accept enclosure in a nunnery as the price of founding the Order of the Poor Clares.

And Circe the Witch? Is she the ultimate conniving female malevolence? Or just a girl.

About the artist:

Nethery came to art practice after a lifetime of trying to make words communicate mental pictures.

Now she struggles with the opposite: making visual art out of ideas gathered from the many books and essays layered in her mind. She works predominantly in oil or mixed media painting but often transfers and layers images onto fabrics, glass and other materials.

She completed an MFA in 2014. She also holds an MA in History and is a professional librarian. Nethery maintains a studio Old Midland School in Colorado Springs.
