Maria Haag’s practice is focused on the sensation of life as a journey through a physical and spiritual maelstrom. This journey begins with suffering, seen as a sort of storm: a wrenching out of the common through a series of events, active or passive, which create a puncture in what is, to open space for what could be.

The fragility of things and persons is what inspires her drawings, sweeping lines and crusted layers of paper, charcoal, paint and collage. Haag draw on her memories of growing up in the American Midwest, watching smoke curl up from burning fields, the green and brown swirling skies giving birth to tornadoes, and the ever-present wind carving away at the land and its inhabitants.

Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on view through October 1.
