March 3 - April 2

A concentric yellow orb bursts outward in greyish clouds, yellow smoke and scraggles of black.

Elizabeth Leach Gallery is pleased to present new wall sculptures, drawings and prints by Christine Bourdette that are inspired by geologic phenomena. Through dynamic material investigations Bourdette mimics the shapes, colors and tactile details of the accretions and erosions of earth’s metamorphosis. She considers concepts of geologic time analogous to our relatively shorter time experience as human beings. In this body of work Bourdette says she was interested in the “cumulative distortions, upheavals, erratic shifting of terrain, which seem to me metaphors for this era we inhabit, for a sense of surviving instability through instability. These reflections of and on land mirror a precarious, tactile world, as well as a capacity for transformation and resilience.”
