January 5 - February 15, 1992
Reception: Friday, January 10, 6-9pm
In a solo exhibition, Mariella Bisson exhibits new work in large scale paper collage. These pieces are made of thousands of pieces of paper drawn and marked in black and white. They depict waterfalls, river and forest in the northeastern woodlands.
In these works each piece of paper is like a leaf, a tree particle recombined with its fellows to form the forest floor and the forest itself. The imagery in "First Day in the Forest" is akin to the Hudson River School but her awareness of contemporary political issues regarding these forests give Bisson's work a sense of tension and drama.
