Through their willingness to relinquish control, the artists in MORPH share a common understanding of the inevitable influence of time on the environments we inhabit, from the personal to the cosmic. Bill Gerhard allows natural elements like rain and snow to take control of the surface of his work, with unpredictable results. Colleen McCubbin Stepanic executes paintings in oil and acrylic, then dissects them, creating something wholly unique and unrecognizable: 2D work reborn as three dimensional sculpture. Hanna Vogel transforms commonplace materials, encouraging natural forces to affect the artistic outcome. Her forms evoke the infinite, organic cycle of growth and decay.
Viewers are invited to consider the impact of elemental forces: how they affect creation and destruction to form something altogether new. These artists examine familiar and unfamiliar habitats that have overgrown, unraveled, eroded and morphed.
