Patterns trace our behavior and mark time.
Natural events and human actions build and erode the landscape we inhabit.
Volcanic eruptions scar the earth becoming islands of rich dark soil.
Centuries are marked layer upon layer in sediment and water etched cliffs.
Accidental moments, fossilized in stone and wood, repeat stories from a shared past
While individual footfalls imprint the sand only to be erased by a wave.

In the exhibit, STRATA, Luanne E Witkowski and Denise Marika respond to patterns, materials, and places. The creation and exhibition of these works is a call and response between the two artists. In the floor piece by the same name, Marika's video projection on plywood traces the volcanic landscape, the wood patterns, and the topography of the earth. Witkowski responds by layering and retracing the strata, giving dimension and definition to a landscape that continuously shifts and morphs.

Witkowski's individual panels explore the interrelationship of repeated abstract patterns, while Marika's video installation looks more closely at borders and power dynamics between people and place. Together, the artists have built an exhibit that reflects on time and the cyclical nature and power of all relationships.
