Ruth Hardinger “Eye of the Earth”
This event has ended.
DAVID&SCHWEITZER Contemporary presents a solo exhibition of works by Ruth Hardinger, Eye of the Earth.
Ruth Hardinger’s practice – borne of a love of materiality and process – shares an affinity and respect that indigenous cultures had for the environment. Her abstract forms and environmental activism brings a crucial relevance and complex layered meaning to her work. Hardinger’s instinct is to dig deep; she plunges beyond aesthetics and processes to empower her stone, concrete, paper, graphite, and mixed media works with consciousness and memory. Knowledge is one thing; visceral creation reaches deeper. Each Hardinger work has many layers and probes themes that include time, death, causality – modern and ancient culture’s philosophies, psychologies, and geothermal strata – air, earth and water.
