Fedele Spadafora “Wonder Women”

Rooster Gallery, 190 Orchard St, NYC

In this new body of work, Spadafora sheds light on powerful women who are making a difference in the lives of others in their communities and beyond. The tightly cropped snapshot look of the large-scale images is stark and bold. Working in mixed media on paper, with a moody, muted palette, Spadafora creates dynamic portraits that are simple and direct and communicate a quiet strength. With a straight-off-the-brush feeling, the portraits combine a classical emotional quietness with the graphic impulse of Pop.

The project began as a collaboration between the artist and Aliya Hallim-Byne, co-founder and executive director of Wonder Women, a non-profit organization providing diverse women with opportunities for professional, personal, and community development.
