Metaphors & Metamorphoses

Leigh Hall and Suzanne Mercury

April 4th – 26th

Atlantic Works Gallery is pleased to present Metaphors &Metamorphoses, a lyrical and meditative exhibition which combines sculptural and mixed media images of insects, mirrors, and fragmented language, and explores the weird aerial and liminal physicality of the constantly changing natural world in all its beauty, charm, and strangeness.

Leigh Hall has been fascinated with insects and arachnids all of her life. She also has a tendency to collect scraps of metal with interesting shapes and textures. For this exhibit she combines those two interests in a collection of sculptures depicting various creatures, both real and imaginary.

Suzanne Mercury creates mixed-media assemblages using found objects, old books, LED lights, glass, gold, tree branches, and all manner of odd and natural materials. For this exhibit, she has also created a series of “haptic poems” in etched mirror and glass, which explore where language overlaps with what is dreamlike, ephemeral, and inexpressible.
