Mia Westerlund Roosen: Sculpture and Drawings

May 14 – October 31, 1994


This show surveys the artist's work from the early 1980s to the present (1994), in which she has charted a hybrid course between abstraction and figuration, between reductive form and suggestive content. Her use of a variety of materials, including bronze, lead, concrete, and encaustic, adds to the sensuality of her pieces. Newly created drawings indicate her skill in two dimensions. A highlight of the exhibition is a group of outdoor sculptures that were conceived with the Art Center landscape in mind. These works probe the relationship between sculptural form and the earth itself.
