This show had a great response. Thanks to all who supported it!
From the Sonoran Arts Network:
Another visually stunning work that addresses the chance factor is Kristie Atwood’s, Poe and the Hollow Crown. This time it’s not dice but a chessboard we see created with thorny branches. The chess pieces are small birds with feathers made from the pages of Rachel Carson’s Silent Spring. The chess grid and bird pieces sit atop a board displaying Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Pit and the Pendulum.” Atwood sees this choice of Poe’s works as “correct for a battle that no one can really win considering these birds carry a 'Silent Spring' within them.” The work integrates word and image beautifully. It also reveals Atwood’s personal attempt to come to terms with global environmental changes that ultimately are…or will…affect each of us personally, and which chance is a major factor.
