Opening Reception Thursday, January 18, 7–8:30 pm
Artist Talk Friday, February 16, 
6:30–8 pm

Curators: Anna Macrae, Deborah Kapoor

Nature is the point of departure and the destination for the artists in INTERSECTIONS. These artists use the medium of encaustic to embody the interrelationship between subject and matter.

Stephanie Hargrave applies hundreds of layers of wax to reveal the soft luminosity within botanical micro views that evoke a sensuous awareness of the natural world. Kim Kopp explores the choreography of process, through walking as ritual, mindful reminders of the human imprint within the landscape. Siting landscape as a metaphor for the body, Deborah Kapoor scars or reshapes the terrain, at times cutting away within the form to highlight the reciprocal relationship between destruction and renewal. Tara McDermott illuminates the surface with glimpses of flora that glow like windows of light within the pictorial frame.

These intersections of beauty and vulnerability reaffirm the temporality that make us human.
