In her works in sculpture and installation, Virginia Overton employs readily available or repurposed building materials as well as common found imagery in reaction to the particular conditions of the exhibition space and its environs. She has developed a sculptural vocabulary that uses and reuses these materials and images. While the work often incorporates large-scale elements, Overton still allows for a sense of ad hoc fragility in the provisional relationships she sets up between the architecture and her materials. The heightened awareness of the weight-bearing loads and the pull of gravity underscore how the materials have been asked to perform, holding traces of past uses and process to become more than just “raw” material.
Exhibition Hours: Tues–Fri, 12–6pm; Sat 11–6pm FREE
