Gala Bent
April 2 – May 1, 2009

reception April 2, 2009, 6 – 8 p.m.

Gallery4Culture is delighted to present Overgrown, an exhibit of new drawings by Seattle artist Gala Bent. In a dozen or so works on paper, Bent has produced an enchanting primer on the role of imagination in our understanding of reality. With graphite and gouache, she transports the viewer into an imaginary world populated by benevolent creatures amidst swirling air, water and hair. In these works, visible and invisible meet one another and react. Bent’s work strives to address human’s yearning to know the natural world and to understand that which is invisible.
