August 12th - September 16th, 2016
The Broken, Dead and Pretty is a collection of new photo-based mixed media works by Louisville artist Mickie Winters. Winters is a highly prolific photojournalist, commercial photographer and conceptual artist whose work balances on the edge of overwhelming phycological weight and total freedom. Defined as a collection of memories, Wintersí images are somehow both lovingly comfortable and hauntingly cold.
She has exhibited extensively in the region and her work is housed in multiple private collections. Wintersí commercial clients have included Jack white, My Morning Jacket and Rachel Grimes as well as SPIN Magazine. Additionally, she has played a central role on the Louisville Magazine creative team where she has been the recipient of several awards from the Society of Professional Journalism. Winters also has a love for sharing her knowledge of digital and traditional photographic processes. She has taught several workshops and classes at The University of Louisville, Spalding University, Zoom Group Studio Works for the developmentally disabled as well as Assumption High School among others.
There is beauty in darkness and pain, the broken, dead and forgotten. There is value in that which you give value. It seems gracious to expose the beauty in those feared subjects, the things we want to bury. Remember the forgotten and rebirth those departed.
