an exhibit by Alana MacDougall
Dec 15, 2023 – June 15, 2024
Alana’s work draws on the abstract qualities of medical imaging and the psychological impact of the familiar appearing foreign. Layered drawings and sculpted forms with multiple associations explore the unnerving nature of the unknown and our instinct to find reflections of ourselves in objects and images.
Reflecting on the vulnerability and temporal nature of our bodies and consciousness, the work incorporates fragile material, finite movement, and forms with manifold meanings.
