Please join us at Transformer this Saturday, March 20 at 2pm for a talk with Suspended Landscape artist Mia Feuer in conversation with Transformer's Executive & Artistic Director, Victoria Reis.
Mia is a Canadian citizen currently residing in Washington, DC. She recently received her MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Mia Feuer: Suspended Landscape at Transformer marks Mia's first solo exhibition in Washington, DC.
Mia Feuer’s large scale and site-specific sculptural installations both overwhelm and inspire, presenting what Mia describes as “metaphorical terrain” which references the industrial underbelly of cities that she observed out the window on long train trips up and down the East coast. Mia’s sculptures are brightly colored and powerfully spring from the floor, ceiling or wall, confronting the viewer with the detritus of industrialization, countered by an extremely aesthetically balanced treatment of the juxtaposition of form and color. Mia’s primary materials include foam and aircraft cable which she works into a complex system of construction cranes and pulleys to create a three-dimensional landscape painting.
