Nika Blasser: light mirror | mirror shadow

June 2—July 2, 2016


Blasser's work generates an environment of quiet contemplation, revealing moments of poetic clarity
where nature and artistic agency are fluidly intertwined. In light mirror | mirror shadow Blasser
explores dualities through visual palindromes akin to the infamous Rorschach psychology test,
with each drawing reflecting the altered shadow of its other half.


Made possible through a generous contribution in memory of Margaret Troedson.
