Sand Series, Midori Hirose at the Lumber Room
Loose sand and acrylic.
Interior Margins is curated by Stephanie Snyder, John and Anne Hauberg Curator and Director, Douglas F. Cooley Memorial Art Gallery, Reed College, in collaboration with Lumber Room founder Sarah Miller Meigs.
Eleven artists in Interior Margins, North Pacific American artists by birth or relocation—and all by investment—enact the female body and the work of art toward abstraction's interior visions, swelling forms that appear pressurized to the body's proportions and the surfaces and fabrics that both adorn and reflect its symbolic potential, its mannerisms, while the Northwest's wet, forested clime continues to assert its aqueous pull within the practices of Northwest abstractionists.
