"Sensing Place" is sculptor Ellen George's sophisticated take on the wilder side of botanicals. She returns with sinewy forms that ooze breath and sensuality. Works such as "Wild Blue Indigo" steal directly from the open sky by overlapping elongated swaths of cool blue clay draped from invisible wire. Translucent and vibrant, George's "Twang" reawakens a field of color from memories of her native Texas, dangling just so in flamboyant shades of fuchsia. Part Kodachrome and all handcrafted, these beauties fuse the tension of the organic with the intangible and hallucinogenic qualities.
