JOWITA WYSZOMIRSKA: VANISHING POINT
April 8th - May 13th, 2017
Extended through Saturday, May 27th, 2017
Jowita Wyszomirska's work moves on a pendulum between abstraction and representation, bringing elements of the landscape in and out of focus. For creative inspiration, she closely follows weather by collecting satellite pictures from NASA. She transforms the real-time data into an output of patterns--using them for layering, drawing and creating installations. The Chesapeake region has been her primary focus; but in her newest work she turns her attention to climate change and the most vulnerable landscapes in North America. This exhibition, entitled VANISHING POINT, focuses on the visible signs of climate change and that which is quickly disappearing from our habitual horizon—such as, retreating glacier ice brought on by rising temperatures.
