The Jung Center Gallery presents "Field Explorations" and "As Above, So Below: Inner and Outer Images of the Cosmos" opening reception
Photographer and mixed-media artist Leslie Field examines the beautiful distortions of a kaleidoscope and finds universal imagery in the form of mandalas. Jewelry-maker Priscilla Frake looks toward the cosmos and uses the hyper-real images from the Hubble Space Telescope to inform her work.
In "Field Explorations," Field’s photographs, created with multiple layers both tangibly and symbolically, explore ideas of motion, time, and change. Through her techniques she invites and recognizes life’s randomness and synchronicities.
Priscilla Frake’s "As Above, So Below: Inner and Outer Images of the Cosmos" features metal and enamel sculptures, wall pieces, and jewelry filled with images of the cosmos, drawn from scientific studies, as well as Renaissance and alchemical texts. Her work is an attempt to reconcile science’s rapidly expanding knowledge with a human sense of who we are and how we fit into the universe.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through April 28.
