When Holy Were the Haunted Forest Boughs

Artist: Christine Shields
Gallery: Triple Base
Opening Reception: Friday, August 29th, 7-10pm
Exhibition Dates: August 28 - September 28, 2008
Address: 3041 24th street

"For Shields’s first solo show at Triple Base, she will create an eerie yet ethereal environment, exploring the idea of psychic homelessness. Through a mythological narrative, Shields ponders the impermanence of life and the human need to wander. The installation will highlight Shields’s signature illustrative drawings and paintings of ghosts, orphans, animals and spirits. The artist will also be the first to extend her installation down into the gallery’s cavernous “Triple Basement”, employing descent mythology to depict the soul's journey into darkness and then back into light. "
