> DESCRIPTION

Opal Dust features Casey Watson depicting the sharp-edged task of portraying a soft exterior. Watson’s meticulous colored pencil and graphite drawings invite the viewer to unearth her treasures and inspect their intricacies. Up close, petals, leaves and stems arrange themselves into romantic kaleidoscopic wreaths. These fibrous orbs careen and breed, evoking ideas of natural symmetry, squished floral formations, and cycles of life and death. From a distance, the same drawings take on new forms – fireworks, galaxies, and magnified molecules pop from the paper.

Show runs November 29-January 12, 2013
Artist Reception: December 1, 3-5pm
