Working on paper, painting with watercolor or cutting with a knife, Kroul creates dense organic formations from small shapes and patterns. Inspired by memories, neural pathways and natural elements, these map-like rhythmic structures are landscapes of the mind.

ONE LINE
Emily C. K. Hoisington

May 12 – August 7, 2016

In her “One Line” body of works, Emily C. K. Hoisington uses continuous lines to show encounters between a person and their environment. By using parts of the same line to show, for example, both the contour of a finger and the texture it is touching, the subject and object become connected.

FROZEN MUSIC
Anna Boyer Bredeson

May 12 – August 7, 2016

Bredeson explores the relationship between musical notation and heard vocal song through thread installations that act as visual interpretations of a choral piece. Loosely based on traditional bookbinding stitches, these thread drawings are based on the written score as well as the composer’s conceptual ideas.
