DUNWOODY, Ga. — The Spruill Gallery’s first exhibit of the new year, titled “Questionable Origins,” will feature new sculptural work by Atlanta artist Eileen Braun.
An award-winning ceramicist, Braun grew tired of the limitations and fragility of porcelain and sought a new medium. Her newer work uses rattan reed, cotton string, encaustic wax, latex paint and found objects like fabric and dressmaker’s pattern tissue.
“My art mirrors natural forms with a biomorphic dystopian edge,” Braun said. “Movement, texture and complexity of form are integral as well. My hope is that the viewer will be drawn in by the relaxed floating form; while approaching, they will be intrigued by the ever-changing view of the work — one can see both through it and around it simultaneously.”
The exhibit will run Jan. 30 to March 14. There will be a public opening reception for “Questionable Origins” Thursday, Jan. 30 from 6 to 9 p.m. The Spruill Gallery is located at 4681 Ashford Dunwoody Road in Dunwoody.
“This is the first sculptural exhibit we’ve hosted at the gallery in a few years and we are thrilled,” Gallery Director Jennifer Price said.
