Andra Samelson: Cosmologies

July 20 – November 3, 2013

Using both celestial and Buddhist imagery in her work, Andra Samelson explores the inseparability of the physical and spiritual aspects of the universe. Working with paint, pins, and paper dots, she creates ephemeral constellations in her large-scale wall drawings and paintings. Her floor installations are interactive. Their continuously changing reflections offer metaphorical experience of connection with the cosmos. The exhibition also includes Samelson's recent prints and works on paper.
