Patty Maher The Sky As My Witness

May 3–Jun 1,  2019

This exhibition is an exploration of space, identity, and the feminine figure in the context of the natural world. In each tableau the face of the subject is hidden, rendering them simultaneously “any” and “every” woman. Emotion and story are conveyed using only posture, gesture, symbol, and colour. The viewer encounters these anonymous and private moments within the context of an open or public landscape, creating a tension between intimacy and distance.
