Laura Rathe Fine Art will present the multi-media duo exhibition, "Untethered," featuring new work by Texas-based artists Carly Allen Martin and Lucrecia Waggoner. 

Inspired by feelings of liberation, Martin’s work embraces the lack of control in our current environment, allowing her to abandon the pursuit of perfection and create without censorship. The texture and natural tone of linen act as an invitation to untether from the binding forces present in our world today. For Martin, this is a pursuit of letting go and stripping down to the purest expression of the work.

Exploring the disparity between containment and connection, Waggoner’s newest body of work touches on ideas of naturalism in an industrial world, choosing love above all else and how we need to become united, rather than contained. Although the work conveys a modern message, it has been visually inspired by harmony and balance, a timeless concept consistent through Waggoner's work, due to her inspiration and training with traditional Asian art. The work in the new collection was not created with any particular message or theme at its conception, but manifested from the artist’s subconscious and later reinterpreted to carry out Waggoner’s thoughts and ideas.

In this joint exhibition, both artists embrace the uncertainty of change and present entirely new bodies of work free of constraint, division, and the old status-quo.

Following the opening reception, the exhibition will be on display through December 12.
