Art of Elan


Margaret Griffith

Margaret Griffith’s work reinterprets our urban and residential landscape by reimagining a most tangible structure -- the residential gate -- as a metaphor for impermanence. Her large‐scale paper and metal sculptures begin as photographic images of gates found throughout her Highland Park neighborhood in Los Angeles. Her paper installations are hand‐drawn, cut, and then installed in a variety of ways: on the wall, suspended from the ceiling, and in piles on the floor. Her metal sculptures are hand‐bent sheets of aluminum that are water-jet cut from computer drawings. They are formed into organic and twisted pieces that are installed on the wall. Griffith also includes an audio piece -- interviews with neighbors about their history, background, reasons for having a gate and what the gate means to them -- as part of her installations. Runs March 26 to May 28.
