Barbara Sorensen: Dwellings
Sorensen’s Dwellings reveal how new materials create new possibilities. These works, also in vessel form, suggest bundles of pure energy expanding funnel-like from a narrow bottom to an expansive top.
Created from shaped wire, they operate like three-dimensional drawings in which interior and exterior are indistinguishable. In their open-ness, they present a way to think about the places our bodies and spirits inhabit. They are also distinguished from Sorensen’s other works by their festive colors, a signal, possibly, of a new direction in her work.
