UCO PHOTOGRAPHY STUDENT EXAMINES ‘ALTERED PERFECTION’ IN NEW EXHIBIT

University of Central Oklahoma’s Woody Gaddis Gallery will feature the work of Central photography student Ashley Riddle, a senior photographic arts major from Edmond, through Dec. 20.

The gallery is located in Room 104 of the Communications Building on Central’s campus. Admission is free and open to the public from 9 a.m. to 10 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Riddle’s exhibit, “Altered Perfection,” explores her need for perfection in a society that encourages facades. Each image features a highly stylized portrait of a woman who represents one of Riddle’s most prominent personality traits, perfectionism being chief of those.

“Each character represents an honest look at who I am and an attempt at deeper reflection,” Riddle said in her artist’s statement.

The portraits include characters like “Vanity,” “The Black Sheep,” “The Artist,” “The Lush,” “Perfection,” and more.

Central’s Woody Gaddis Gallery features new exhibitions on a monthly basis. To learn more about this exhibit and upcoming events, visit www.facebook.com/ucophoto.
