Elyn Zimmerman: wind, water, stone

In her stone sculptures, Zimmerman balances the sensuous materiality of magnificent slabs of quarried stone with other key elements such as water, light, and landscape.  Zimmerman’s sculptures reference her attraction to archaic architectural form, a subject also captured in her lush black and white photographs on display in the East Gallery. These photographs, taken during her travels in places such as Peru, India, and Egypt, are joined by images of her many public sculptures, allowing the viewer to make the connection between her large scale public works and the form, light and composition seen in her black and white photography.

Beginning in February 2017, the exhibition continues in the West Gallery which will further explore Zimmerman's works on paper, juxtaposing works from the artist’s Elemental series, including topographical photographic collages, ink and wash drawings of moving water, and pastel drawings of clouds from her Heaven's Breath series.
