Heather Lee Birdsong
Using Forest Park as a backdrop, Heather Lee Birdsong explores how personal relationships and the private experience of emotions can color public spheres. Birdsong's use of unexpected objects imbues these intimate 7 inch by 5 inch gouache paintings with resonance and metaphor.
Through her personal relationship with Forest Park, as well as research into its history, and using both her own and appropriated phrases, Alyson Provax crafts evocative text-based artworks. Poised between poetry and philosophy, her experimental letterpress prints are approximately 4 inches by 5 inches on paper.
