Rosemary Luckett
Altered Terrain
Drawings & Sculpture

Sept. 29-Oct 31, 2010
Opening: Friday, Oct. 1, 6-8:30 pm
Artist Talk: Sunday Oct. 17, 2 pm

Rosemary Luckett juxtaposes sculpture and mixed media drawings in her solo show “Altered Terrain,” a lively interplay between 2-D and 3-D expression. Connecting unlikely elements, she pairs: real ducks with rubber duckies, bucket-wheel coal excavators with a heart, and a sardine can with a bear's head.  Each piece is built around a single real or symbolic object, or group of items seemingly unrelated to each other. The fun for her is in trying out unusual combinations of forms and then solving mysterious links between them.  Finely-honed technique, a penchant for repeating forms,  and a strong concern for the environment combine with a questioning mind and a sense of humor to form these surreal landscapes; stories of the altered natural landscape and how each person unwittingly contributes to its transformation.
