SYMBIOSIS: URBANITY AND THE NATURAL LANDSCAPE
Symbiosis is an eclectic exhibition, which examines the intersection of the natural world and the experience of urban landscape through abstract ceramics and mixed media. Wood uses color and form to reference the natural world and the urban experience. Her work often combines science, social relationships, and elements of surrealism. The work is tactile using form and color to create visual metaphors. It explores the tension inherent in organic communities, human or otherwise, between interdependence and the desire for independence. Her work inspects the remnants of an urban existence and the beauty that can be created from that interaction.
Danielle Wood uses clay to create sculptures and installations that are inspired by ocean forms and the natural world. She views the ocean as metaphor for the subconscious and works abstractly to create visual metaphors for social relationships in her work.
The exhibition will run from July 21st through August 13, 2017. The artist will host on opening reception on Friday, July 21st from 6 – 10 pm and be in the gallery for First Friday on August 4, 2017, during regular eye lounge hours and by appointment.
