Legacy DC Gallery is pleased to present Summer Daydream, a sculpture and painting duo exhibition by artists & lovers Anthony Le and Ashley Jaye Williams.
A summer daydream is this fantasy of heat, bodies, and long days in the sun. Summer feels idyllic and aspirational but rarely escapes disappointment.
Anthony Le’s “Golden Hour” paintings imagine what life could be if we all basked in self-acceptance and self-determination. The figures depicted ask existential questions but don’t have to ask if they’re allowed to exist.
Ashley Jaye Williams has been subjected and held accountable to the societal standards attached to her physical identity. Her understanding of objectification is almost completely informed by a negative lexicon of life experiences associated with inhabiting a body with the label “female”. Visual attention does not equal respect.
