The Garden’s Secret Weavings: The Art of Brittany Miller
January 24 - February 22, 2019
The Gallery at the Sheen Center
“The Garden’s Secret Weavings” is a collection of art objects by Brittany J. Miller. In Miller’s works, plant fragments act as bodies: interconnected, fragile, and holy beings moving through difficult worlds toward each other. Roots formed in gold-wrapped silk, crystallized copper, and wax become intertwined inside of landscapes built out of tar, mosquito netting, and leather. Ferns, roses, and onion bulbs float, become buried, and are resurrected as glowing, gold silhouettes and ghostly cyanotype shadows.
