Leah Oates: Transitory Spaces
January 20, 2010 - April 3, 2010

Transitory Space, Vermont

Organized by Alexander Campos, Executive Director

In this exhibition, Oates will show newer work from the “Transitory Space” series along with framed digital prints of book spreads. One of the books from this series is created from images shot in Finland and Newfoundland. Her past books have been created from a feminist perspective, while more recently she has explored ideas about public and private space, but intrinsic in all of her books is an acute sensibility for their visual appearance. She states, “Many of my books deal with an inner awareness of the world either as a woman or as an individual experiencing time, memory and space through poetic and fluid perspective.”
