Interdependent by Angela Biederman and Jonathan Schwarz
Friday, March 31, 2017 to Sunday, July 23, 2017


A collaborative exhibition of ceramic and mixed media sculptures, these works address dual yet interdependent concepts such as stability, fragility, structure, deterioration, isolation and interconnectedness. They also explore notions of precarious yet sustained balance, the effects of interaction and contact, tension, fusion and slow transformation.  Inspired by human relationships and the natural world, works also resemble how independent entities rely on, affect, balance, uphold, and define one another through figurative, organic and industrial elements.
