Sculpture Exhibit Debuts in Geisel Library’s 1st Floor Atrium

Posted On: August 14, 2017

UC San Diego Visuals Arts Instructor, Audrey Hope, has installed a selection of her sculptures in Geisel’s 1st Floor West underground Library gardens.

The Light Wells exhibit consists of three small sculptures that incorporate textiles soaked in plaster and paint with photographs printed on polyester.

The photographs depict moments when the divisions between inside and outside collapse, when nature is brought indoors and pushes its way out.

The Geisel Library’s light wells, architectural features constructed in the early 1990s, are a tender example of the ways that we draw nature indoors in order to remind ourselves of the world outside.

In addition, Hope has assembled approximately 50 books that will be available alongside the exhibit. These books describe the artist’s points of inspiration, including grottoes and self-taught artist’s gardens. The collection also includes resources about the artists and theories covered in Material and Scale.

Hope is an MFA candidate in the Visual Arts Department at UC San Diego. Her works are also on view in the Office of the Dean of Arts and Humanities and the Office of Graduate Studies.

Light Wells is on display until Sunday, August 27.
