French Doors by Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter.
Exhibition: March 25 – May 13 
Honfleur Gallery presents French Doors, a never before seen show by influential artist and educator, Aziza Claudia Gibson-Hunter. Gibson-Hunter has worked and exhibited in Washington, DC for over 25 years and is one of the founding members of Black Artists DC.

In this series, Gibson-Hunter questions the implication of opulence in Parisian architecture with large-scale mixed media works. The artist juxtaposes the ornate doors prevalent in Paris against West African patterns. The resulting works explore wealth, power, and exploitation in relationship to personal and national sovereignty.

Honfleur Gallery is contemporary fine art gallery that opened in 2007, located at 1241 Good Hope Road SE. For more information, visit http://www.honfleurgallery.com/.

Primordial Planes by Alexandra Chiou.
Exhibition: March 25 – May 13
In Primordial Planes, Alexandra Chiou creates delicate, collaged cut paper paintings that mimic the natural world. Using inspiration from studies at National Geographic, Chiou has brought to life ethereal images that can at once suggest intergalactic formations or unseen microcosms. The artist says of her work, “They reminds us that while at moments our presence can feel small in comparison to the wild, that our bodies are also terrains with ecosystems brimming with life.”
