Alison Stigora’s exhibition features raw and discarded materials assembled into discrete sculptural elements. Seed is a swollen elliptical formation made of charred tree limbs that evokes metaphors of birth and death while Ascents appears as an ascending tangle of branches between columns reflecting growth through the gallery. In the corner lies Pyramidion, a gilded trove of cardboard that proffers an illuminated path to the unknown. When viewed together, these individual forms complete the artist’s three-dimensional interpretation of the past, present, and future.
