Don’t Miss This: Exhibition by Ledelle Moe and Miranda Pfeiffer

The scale and posture of Ledelle Moe’s monumental cement and steel sculptures provokes questions about human relationships with nature, the spaces we occupy and the markers we leave behind. Moe’s central installation, featuring two immense recumbent birds, recalls the mythology of the sunbird and the ancient form of the sarcophagus.

Miranda Pfeiffer’s large-scale drawings, rendered in painstaking detail with the fine tip of a mechanical pencil, capture moments and locations with dramatic implication. The narratives she evokes are not easily located in a specific time or a familiar setting, instead they portray a fictitious land with endless possibility.

In Traces, the contrasting motifs found in nature such as birth and death, light and dark, the solid and the ephemeral in addition to the accepted limits of form, time and space, are held in suspense. Both artists ask the viewer to consider a different set of rules, allowing imagination and mythology to intervene.
