Brenda Mallory Exhibition at Portland Art Museum

Brenda Mallory’s installation entitled Recurring Chapters in the Book of Inevitable Outcomes will be on display through October 2017.  Her work is inspired by Cherokee history, and addresses ideas of disruption, repair, and renewal.  Working with waxed cloth, steel, nuts and bolts, the installation consists of tall shapes resembling charred timbers or skeletal plant stalks surrounded by colorful, lively spore-like forms. The ruin-like floor pieces speak to what was left behind, but the resilience and hope shows in the spore-like forms that scatter across the walls and floor like blowing seeds.
