Lauren Carrera: Genus Allegorious | Christopher Shotola Hardt: Elegy for the Birds

First Thursday - October 4 | 6 – 9 pm

Show Runs October 2 - 27, 2018
2018

For her New Member show at Blackfish Gallery, sculptor and painter Lauren Carrera offers two installations that further her examination of the interplay between science and art. Her Aviary wall assemblages and The Study, a sculptural installation on floor and wall, employ found and hand-painted objects as well as collage and hand made paper shoes (The Study).

Portland’s “put a bird on it” mentality receives a firm rebuke in the hands of painter Christopher Shotola-Hardt, whose avian imagery is the product of careful observation, deep appreciation and empathy. Never mere decoration, birds are both muse and indicator species for Shotola-Hardt, whose paintings combine complex visual references to art history, religion, architecture, decorative arts and ecology.
