About the Exhibit
Opening Reception: Saturday June 10, 12-4pm | More Info
Through July 30
Carole Hallé creates large scaled drawings and life sized sculptures which are reminiscent of the human form. Exploring vulnerability, despair, sensuality and alienation through soft visual language, she melds these feelings across drawing, wood carving, forged steel, to create an engulfing womb like sense tipping the balance between vulnerability and the power of flesh.
