Cloud Tree Studios & Gallery presents Alejandra Almuelle: "Being" opening day
Cloud Tree Studios & Gallery will present "Being," an exhibit of new works by local sculptor Alejandra Almuelle.
This series explores the state of being as a process of becoming. Open to all possible instances in the ground of experience, "Being" becomes happening. It unfolds through time as possibility. Unbound from fixed identifications, Being embodies the space it both inhabits and transits. Temporarily this; temporarily here.
The exploration of an idea in a piece is central to Almuelle. She works in a series until the idea is exhausted within the form. She has completed several series in which the common thread is the human shape. She usually finds herself in between the pull that lures her to work to see “it“ in front of her and the challenge to translate into form what has an intangible shape in a corner of her mind’s eye. So while working on a piece, the piece is also working on her, working as a way of revealing, making visible, bringing into light. As a base medium, she feels that clay is appropriate for expressing the human journey because it is the material we are made of.
The exhibit will remain on display through August 22. Due to the pandemic, visits are by appointment only so social distancing is properly implemented. Visitors are required to wear a mask. To schedule a visit, go to www.cloudtreestudiosandgallery.com or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
