In the Galleries
694 N High St
Sherrie Gallerie will be featuringTextured Edge by Leah Wong from September 7 through October 5.
Drawing and traditional Chinese paper-cuts have merged organically in Leah’s contemporary art-making. The lines of drawing and cutting communicate naturally into one form in her work. The combination of drawing and cutting induces a sense of movement and energy. She explores the elements of volume, void, the gestures of hand on paper, light and shadow to transform and create new visual possibilities. The open-ended activity creates a conversation between lines and space.
