Featuring work by: Wendy Given

Exhibition: Thu, Sep 12, to Sat, Oct 12 2013

Wendy Given’s production of uncanny contemporary photography and sculpture stems from a profound interest and practice guided by natural philosophy, history, folklore, myth and magic – magic as a term meant to conjure the notion of the interconnectedness of all life forces. Given additionally posses a keen sensibility in observing, documenting and seamlessly merging the natural with the other worldly – or, seemingly, supernatural.

Given’s imagery is overtly multifaceted - not simply fantasy pastiche, mere references to antiquated belief systems and iconographies, nor basic field documentation - she constructs a current and substantial visual mode to reveal the implicit ironies in a modern life ruled by the unexplainable. Nature is prescribed as a foundation of power, verity and mystery in Given’s work-both intelligible and arcane. She gives significant credence to the animals, rocks, plants, earth, water and heavens – the familiar, the unfamiliar and the essential. Her works conveys an intense yearning to utilize and honor our inherent awareness – to regain the unspoken understanding that we are all, and always will be integral to and dependent on the natural world.
