Christine Bourdette: Terra Mobilis
Portland artist Christine Bourdette creates inscrutable works from wood, leather, and basically whatever else she can get her hands on. With an output that ranges from forlorn, broken human figures to smaller, delicately decorative pieces, she says she identifies recurring ideas such as “mortality, transformation, mobility, and deception.” Her recent sculpture and drawings take inspiration from geologic forms and the shifting, slipping, and eroding of the earth, revealing its history in gaps and fissures. This exhibition will complement Bourdette’s work on view in The Female Figure: Artistic Multiplicities at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art at the University of Oregon through July 28.
