Ashley Addair is a nomadic artist working between media and place. Attending to ordinary gestures of existence, she paints, makes textiles, dances, and writes letters. Recited in alternating tones of delight and exasperation, her practice wrestles with macro questions at an individual and familial scale. Examining how the particulars and pace of our age interface with the messy complexity of our inner landscapes she questions socially constructed notions and ruminates on the relationship between physical and ideological structures.
Addair is currently pursuing her MFA at The Art Institute of Chicago, hoping to gather enough accolades to finally stop writing about herself in the the third person.
