Embodiment

Embodiment features Alfred Harris, Rachel Maxi, Vander McClain, Stas Orlovski, Megan Prince, Brooks Salzwedeland Cara Tomlinson. Select work shown here. All included work is in the show’s viewing room.

A lifelong diarist, painter Alfred Harris’s colorful, graphic compositions give expression to his memories and dreams.

Through her materials and construction, Rachel Maxi’s paintings, relief wall sculptures, and free-standing totems are a tangible synthesis of memories and interpretations of natural and built environments.

Vander McClain documents solitary moments within the vast continuance of time and nature through his gauche and ink drawings of found and natural objects discovered in remote areas of the American West.

Themes of memory, migration, loss, and transformation permeate the delicate and dreamlike collaged drawings of Stas Orlovski. Images of fallen statues, running men, heads, feet, eyes, flags, plants, and books represent the inescapable influence of the past on our present personal and collective constructs.

The delicate oil pastel and graphite drawings on paper by multimedia artist Megan Prince speak to the necessity of community and the importance of recognizing our interrelated humanity. 

Based in figuration, Cara Tomlinson’s paintings investigate the friction between opposing forces and states of being and how that tension can be navigated in the creation of physical and personal balance.
