NEW PASSAGES: MARI ANDREWS & ANN HOLSBERRY
de Saisset Museum of Art, Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, CA, 2014
New Passages investigates notions of navigation, migration, time keeping and travel. Together the artists begin to uncover the metaphorical, philosophical, and personal meanings behind these ideas. Working separately, but on parallel paths, each artist gives visual form to the idea of “passage.”
Holsberry’s recent series takes migration as its central theme, but does so in a way that is fluid and ever-changing… She creates stunningly beautiful works that engage the viewer and encourage deeper reflection… Though deeply personal, Holsberry’s work maintains an important universality, drawing on the individual, yet shared experience of moving from one place to another.
