Fragile is an installation of abstracted leaf “portraits.” With pastel drawings pinned across the gallery walls at fluctuating intervals and heights, the installation forms a rhythmic narrative, punctuated by lightness and gravity. The drawings recall the inner energy of the leaves, transforming their torn, shriveled reality.

A sense of growth and movement enlivens some drawings, crowding the paper, while others are spare and meditative. There is a delicate balance of wavering marks, layers of atmospheric color, and the trailing of pastel fingerprints.

Storrow considers aging and the passing of time. Here are things that are uncertain, that are falling, and that need to be held. Fragile captures the raw edge of physical deterioration and balances it with a bright core of toughness found in the remnants.
