Breath by Angela Hansen // Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art



Fri, Jul 30th, 2021


8:30 pm to 2:00 am


Angela Hansen’s new exhibition at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, 'Breath' takes inspiration from the ocean to consider the carbon cycle and the impact humanity is having upon it.

'Breath' includes a series of small wall-sculpture studies made of encaustic (a beeswax-based painting and sculpting medium), natural tissue, twine and string, that are inspired by Earth’s flora, and micro-fauna. Hansen calls these biomorphic designs “Organimorphs”, as they look biologic, yet not recognizable as any particular one thing.
Angela has worked with encaustic for over 20 years; its versatility of applications drives her art-making practice of both 2D and 3D works. She is inspired by forms found in the natural world, the human psyche, memory formation, and, more recently, a growing interest in ecological and environmental art practices as a factor in cultural transformations.
