Margaret Boozer: Dirt Drawings
June 27 through August 16, 2009
In these installations of unfired local clays, Boozer's graphic compositions of color, pattern and texture create small geologic events, manifestations of cause and effect celebrating clay's physical properties. Colors change,shapes warp, cracks emerge as counterpoint to the artist's hand in these fragile and mutable works that cross genres between painting and sculpture, abstraction and representation.
