EARTH / ETHER is currently on display at cityhomeUNDERGROUND featuring the work of two Salt Lake City artists, Colour Maisch & Emily Plewe.
Rooted in the earth element with Colour’s porcelain and ink sculptures, the exhibition is expanded by Emily’s abstract paintings that are inspired by cosmology and the vastness of the universe. It is a striking, yet meditative show that allows us to consider the connections between this world and the next, and our place within it all.
“I am drawn to the inevitable impact of time, place, and environment on a body. I use the word body in a very broad sense and mean it to not only encompass the human body, but also the body of the Earth and the body of materials we surround ourselves with. Ultimately, my work is about degradation of my own body, the degrading bodies and beings around me, and a degrading environment…” - Colour Maisch
“My work explores interactions, energy, interrelationships, and the parallels that exist between the macrocosmic and microcosmic elements of the universe. The work is informed by my studies of quantum physics and cosmology. As an artist, I find concepts and discoveries in these fields to be endlessly fascinating and evocative….” – Emily Plewe
cityhome agents and art lovers Kelly Carper and Samuel Green are the organizers behind this exhibition, and would love to invite the community into the space once again during the Salt Lake Gallery Stroll on March 17th from 6-9pm. The pair will also be hosting Coffee with the Collective on Wednesday, March 15th from 9am to noon in the adjacent lounge, where you can stop in for a warm morning beverage after perusing the art. Not a bad way to start the day…or to end the week.
You can also experience this show during our regular cityhomeCOLLECTIVE office hours by sending us a text at 801-718-5555 or email [email protected]
We look forward to having you in our home.
