Event Description

Opening Reception: Wednesday, November 14 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Sarah Emerson's paintings present viewers with highly stylized versions of nature by taking patterns already visible in the natural world and painting them in pastel hues and paint-by-number repetition. In the exhibition, Emerson refers to a phrase from Lewis Carroll's introduction to Alice in Wonderland where Carroll reflects on his whimsical creation of Alice and her journeys through Wonderland after falling through the rabbit hole. As a parallel tale to Alice's journey, in this selection of paintings Emerson examines contemporary landscapes and the history of specific locations that embody the haunting echoes of paradise and innocence lost. In the gap between concept and abstraction, Emerson hopes to document the collision of the actual event in its place and the imaginary tale of the event abstracted by distance, time and romantic notoriety.
