Shadow Walks: Opening Fri. Oct 1, 5-8pm
Trees reach, extending upward, branches forking. Lines wandering with purpose. Reaching and growing. Similarly, their roots weave themselves as they descend into the earth below. Shadows in between, patterns, lines, and shapes crisscross the path.
The sun casts shadows that change dramatically through the day. Shadows cast, long and short. They vary based on time and season, but also because the sun is not a single point source of light. Light generated by the sun emanates from different points in space along the sun’s surface creating sharp and soft edges, lines, and shapes.
Shadow Walks explores these patterns, and the way trees, shadows, and reaching and forking branches become metaphors.
