New Works by Melissa Wyman and Mica Still
Mica Still and Melissa Wyman invite you into investigate and discover
their new show "Take Flight."

Melissa Wyman has worked with Mica in a series of experimental works which deals with letting go of ego and experiencing the process. This collaboration includes drawing, painting and reworking each others aesthetic expressions. Mica Still individually explores two new series: In Mica's first series she invites you to have a closer look to discover the meaning and myth of her installation of mounted crow heads. The second is an on going series of works titled "Drink you own culture". This work is the first of more to come that investigates the use of symbols and language that represents her culture of the United States and how they supposedly define her.
