WRAPTURES: New Works by SANDRA SHEEHY
Exhibition Date: September 12-October 13, 2007
Opening Reception: Wednesday, September 12, 2007

Sandra Sheehy's work is explosive in its orchid-like voluptuousness. One can look at these obsessively stitched, beaded and drawn constructions from a distance and also from close and get different readings on the intricate processes of her world. The work however is not solipsistic, no more so than the inter-tangled greenery of a forest glade or the play of light and animal life on a deep reef.

This new work discovers more layers of the language she began exploring a number of years ago. There is more painting and there is more of a sense of these being packets of imagery, almost like African nkisi, objects that bind faith and seal secrets. The process is as important as the result but these seem almost occult, exorcised of any evil, set out on the wall to heal the viewer, to draw him/her into a world that allows for exploration of the hypnogogic state while remaining awake. This is the true success of a visionary, non-doctrinal art.
