On Friday August 4th, 6pm Wolff Gallery reopens in Eastside Portland with Gently Wild, a photo-based solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Calethia DeConto. DeConto’s series is a mixture of black-and-white photographs, cyanotypes, and collages that reflect her deep spiritual connection to the natural world, particularly the ocean. DeConto also draws inspiration for much of her imagery from the Yoruba goddess of the living ocean, Yemayá, who is believed to be the source of all life and whose colors are traditionally blue and white.
