Lily Hanson Invisible Cities

November 16, 2007 – January 5, 2008

Artist Statement

“The sculptural pieces in the gallery consist of smaller, sometimes, miniature items that are placed within a “stage” or ‘place’ created by larger components. The space and the format of the gallery provide the spatial context around which the pieces were developed.

This idea comes loosely from experiences I’ve had with painting where the overall image, when examined up close breaks down into marks and shapes that swing out from the whole as separate events.

The individual components of these pieces have references to tools, toys, and other smaller compact forms.”
