Archive: Grand Opening
Stacie Birky Greene's Archive runs September 2 to October 28. The exhibit combines three major threads of the artist’s work, all referring to the natural world in various degrees of distress.
A series of mixed media works blurs boundaries, juxtaposing ocean and desert images, for example, revealing unexpected formal allies. The use of a variety of materials, many of them reclaimed, suggests hope for renewal. Birky Greene will also present part of her ongoing series of endangered birds drawn on handmade paper made from recycled junk mail. Finally, she will show pieces from her "extinct" series: drawn on reclaimed wooden rectangles and presented in a fragmented grid, each of the birds shown here has gone extinct since 1970.
