Sandra Dal Poggetto: Meditations on the Field

July 17-September 27, 2014
Paxson and Meloy Galleries

Helena-based artist Sandra Dal Poggetto is featured in a solo exhibition of new and recent large-scale works. Dal Poggetto paints abstract images which incorporate fragments of the western landscape—hide, feathers, wood and wire—to approach the experience of the natural world. She draws on and deconstructs both Euro-American pictorial language and American Indian visual traditions to create uneasy syntheses which Pulitzer-Prize winning author/critic Mark Stevens describes as “truthful reflection[s] of our culture’s complex relations to the landscape of the West.” In addition, Dal Poggetto will select objects from MMAC’s Permanent Collection to illustrate different philosophical and aesthetic understandings of the human relationship to the natural world. Through Dal Poggetto’s re-contextualization of these works, she probes, questions and reveals the past, calling for a renewed connection with nature.
