From the street, Averie's "Caught" looks differently based on the reflections from outside

One Wall 2017 opens with a Shibari piece named "Caught" by Averie at Jackson Junge Gallery, 1389 N. Milwaukee Ave. It will remain on display through July 27. 

Shibari is using twine to tie objects or packages and is a type of Japanese bondage. Averie saw examples of the art in Seattle and decided to use it as an artistic challenge.

From inside the gallery, one can see that the figure in "Caught" is a flat silhouette and the ropes are in a three-dimensional design in front of the figure

Because of the flexibility of rope, Averie, who has a background in oil painting and photography, decided to use it as a tool. She decided to create a piece that would display the beauty of the human form. “Rope offers structure, security, flexibility, and restriction which is why I value working with it. 

”When the rope is applied to the body these properties ignite a freeing sense of vulnerability and transformation," says Averie. The rope acts as a structure to keep the body from leaving the space "free to move, free to feel, but not free to escape.”
