Afton Love: Perfect Union

February 27, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

In Perfect Union, Afton Love shares a geological sense of time. Her large-scale drawings of rock formations consider the time span of hundreds of thousands of years. She works across media, including graphite, beeswax, clay, wool, and resin. Her immersive installation sized drawings and exploratory sculpture aim to call attention to our human condition in connection with the natural world. Love explores geology, particularly how rocks are created and transformed on the earth’s surface. Describing sedimentary rocks as fragile bodies that constantly lose their layers due to constant friction and interaction with the environment, she states, “We cannot access the interior of things or people, only the thin layer of surface that covers them where a limited portion of reality is manifested. The stone is a metaphor for our planet and ourselves.”

Attend a free virtual opening Saturday, February 27, 6-7 pm MST. Register here: 516arts.org/programs/events.
