Nancy Lovendahl: Small Glimpses, Many Times
????? ????????, ???? ????? presents a new body of work by sculptor and mixed media artist Nancy Lovendahl. For over thirty years, she has investigated the human relationship with landscape, drawing inspiration from the mountainous panorama that surrounds her home and studio in Old Snowmass, CO.
The exhibition title references meditative, repetitive practices found in Buddhist philosophy. In this new body of work, Lovendahl uses repetition and scale to invite viewers to examine their own perception of the world around them. She has constructed the form of a mountain (Garett Peak, near her home studio) from memory, repeating the form in two and three dimensions and various media, including cast resin and Tyvek. Through the process of iteration and repetition, she aims to offer new ways of seeing and understanding. Lovendahl hopes that this work will prompt viewers to examine their own perception and assumptions, making space for unity and connection.
