Opening Reception & Artist Talk: Friday, January 29, 6-7:30 p.m.
Using rocks, bricks, and automobile tire shreds as mark-making tools, Athena LaTocha creates large-scale works on paper that explore the tenuous relationship between natural landscapes and landscapes marked by human intervention. LaTocha prefers to work on the floor, reflecting the relationship between human and landscape, while choosing unusual drawing tools for their physicality and ability to convey gestural intensity.
