Art’s Alive Presents
Art’s Alive welcomes Burlington based artist, Katie Loesel.
Her work uses abstraction and color to explore ideas of geological history, microscopic surfaces, and rocky formations. Her interest in human influence on climate change and plastic as a distinct marker of our current era play into the shapes and forms. Plastiglomerate is a new type of rock formation that has been proposed as a geological marker of our current epoch, the Anthropocene, created from a mixture of natural and sedimentary elements fused by plastic from the ocean. The horror and intrigue from this distinctly human interference inspires the shape, form, and color that meld together through layers in the artwork. The appearance of these objects in the work are strangely playful, yet expose our flaws as creators of this plastic virus that is becoming layered into our history. The subjects in the artwork develop and grow in complexity throughout the process of making and layering and range from simple, overlapping shapes, to complicated structures.
Her exhibit runs through the end of October, while also being open for the 2016 Art Hop weekend, at 60 Main Street, Suite 2-E, for more information, please contact SEABA at 802-859-9222 or email@example.com Open M-F, 8-3pm, Sat-Sun by apt only.
