Exhibiting November 4 – December 31, 2019
For the last four years, Brett Poza has focused her art work on nature, from imperfect old trees to disasters, imagining the hardships that nature endures. Using large wood panels as a canvas, Brett uses pyrographic techniques, water-based inks and non-toxic chemicals to create this exhibit which is fittingly titled Burned Stories.
“I am interested in the way multiple narratives wrap themselves around an object or an event much in the same way family may recount a story from multiple perspectives- mostly true, and yet different.”
