"The Pond, The Enso and Other Nature Works"
Karen LeCocq/Mixed Media
Gallery 25 member, Karen LeCocq will be presenting a solo exhibit of three separate bodies of work. "The Pond" is a break from her usual artistic expression, assemblage sculpture. It is a large installation piece of 20' high x 50' wide x 5' deep that is a tribute to the five ponds on her property and the amazing man who created them.
"The Enso" has been a reoccurring symbol in her work for over 15 years. Unlike the "one stroke" brush work of Zen monks, it is recreated in 3D, mostly out of tin can lids and placed in a natural setting.
"The Works" are an earthly blend of organic found materials. Some deal with our threatened environment and endangered animals. LeCocq aims for a mindfulness to these issues, believing that one might not necessarily come to on one's own.
