Emilie Brzezinski: Natural Fact Sculpture Exhibit

About the Exhibition:

George Mason University School of Art is proud to host Emilie Brzezinski: NATURAL FACT, a survey of the Virginia sculptor’s 40 year career. Brzezinski is best known for towering arrangements of twisting chainsaw carved tree trunks which exploit the modernist maxim “truth to materials” to surprising expressive effect. This exhibition brings together examples of her signature tableaux alongside works from earlier periods in materials such as latex and resin.

“Much of the material that has gone into the creation of this show originated in Virginia and so it’s a pleasure for me to display the work here, especially at an up and coming university that places value in the arts.” Brzezinski said. One sure feature of the show will be High Point, a monumental 15-foot oak that greets visitors just outside the gallery’s already seemingly large barn sliding doors. Another highlight will be Children’s Arch, a nearly 12-foot tall gateway sculpted from three trunks of gum wood; Brzezinski created the arch in 1991, yet this is its first public exhibition.

All events free and open to the public.
