EMERGENCE FROM THE WATERS

June 4th 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm

In related news, opening at GALLERY 72 on June 4th, 2015 will be the exhibition ” Emergence from the Waters” featuring the works of Atlanta metal artist Corrina Sephora.  Emergence from the Waters is a collection of water-themed art spanning the past decade, including debuting new works. Emergence of the Waters is a series of sculptures, paintings, animation and installations of boat forms, birds in flight and other aquatic imagery from the spaces above and below the water’s surface. Sephora’s ideas and concepts, from drawings in tiny notebooks to architectural blueprints that emerge into sculptures, will be on display. The exhibit examines water in all its multi-faceted forms and influences, with towering solid steel waves that have boats and birds tethered to them, ladders that climb into the ephemeris and an installation that draws parallels between a fleet of boats and a flock of birds. Sephora’s storytelling talents will be showcased in Flowing as Water, a fairy tale video inspired by her visit to an adoption support group.
