February 15 – March 22, 2018 – Gage Family Art Gallery
Reception: Thursday, February 15, 6-8 p.m.
The artwork in this exhibition explores the visual relationship created by combining natural and manufactured elements. This combination is meant to appear grafted and somewhat uncomfortable. This tension and the forms I utilize are intended to reference ideas of transplantation, migration and change.
