Semblant Geometries: through November 15

Curious to see the completed version of what I’ve been working on for more than a year? Well, it’s up and ready for public consumption:

Semblant Geometries
October 17 through November 15, 2014

Photo & Print Gallery at PNCA’s main campus
1241 N.W. Johnson St., Portland, OR 97209
Reception with the artist: Thursday, Nov. 6, 2014, from 6-8 p.m.

Where do math and metaphor meet? In this body of work, which includes a fine press book and etchings, printmaker Heather Lee Birdsong pairs the crisp visual language of planar geometry with folk tales. The application of metaphor (mathematically expressed as x = y) is a powerful associative tool that can unite otherwise unrelated elements.

This project was funded in part by an Individual Artist Project Grant awarded by the Regional Arts and Culture Council.

Here’s a sneak preview of the work:
