Studios On High Gallery | 686 N. High St.

Studio on High features Jen McCracken is drawn to the forms created by the intersections of roots and branches. She sees a vulnerability in these shapes because they often seem human… the roots reach out like hands, holding on to the remaining side of an eroding ravine. This fight for survival reflects the human struggle. Things decay and erode, yet we cling to what is left, hoping to live another day.
