Blackbridge Hall Art Gallery will present “Shift Split,” an exhibition produced by Atlanta based artist Martha Whittington, through Feb. 7.
All events are free and open to the public.
“Shift Split” connects with the gallery space as it adheres to the walls and floors. The artist’s works invite the viewer in by the use of form and structure, but they also present a challenge to discover the intent behind the work. Whittington’s pieces seek to find the boundaries between life experience and sculpture, while attempting to discover where these concepts intersect.
Whittington’s piece focuses on the idea of labor, particularly relating to the lumber industry.
“The early inspiration for this installation was the manual nature of the early logging industry, using tools such as the two handled cross cut saw, presented here in curry-colored linen,” said Whittington.
Whittington received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Kansas City Art Institute and a Master of Fine Arts degree from Tyler School of Art.
