Mary Admasian: Marked

September 6 – October 2, 2019

Marked is a collection of small sculptures and assemblages made from reclaimed wood, barbed wire, rusted metal, gold wire, glass beads, acrylic paint, and graphite. Admasian composed the collection within a conceptual narrative prompted by how we mark trees with blue paint before they are cut, discarded, or used for building. Within these materials, she explores the actual barriers between objects—positions and connections—as well as the implicit boundaries of familial, political, and social covenants and conventions.
