Immortal: A New Series by Miya Bailey

Immortal: A New Series by Miya Bailey

Gallery, Installations, Painting
Memory: Something remembered from the past; a recollection. Immortal: living forever Memories, visions and dreams elicit stories about personal experiences, histories and cultures. They are a part of the human experience. Elie Wiesel once said, “Without memory there is no culture … there would be no civilization, no society, no future,” yet, with time, memories can fade, become lost, or forgotten. Writers, film makers and artists alike, play a vital role in not only keeping memories, dreams and visions alive, but immortal. North Carolina-born and Atlanta-based artist Miya Bailey does just this in his new exhibition, Immortal. This exhibition, created for the Gantt Center, explores Bailey’s personal memories of happiness and pain and how artists immortalize people, places and the past through the visual arts. Movement, figures and vivid colors are seen throughout Bailey’s work; each image represents an escape from today’s world into the recollections of the past. This exhibit invites the viewer to relinquish control and allow the mind to wander into Bailey’s personal history as well as their own.
