Works from Summit by Alexis Fryer Ostraff, are on display in the library until September 14.
“These pieces come from a series of work titled Summit. I began the work as a response to my impressions of the changing light and color of the mountains around my home in Central Utah. They seemed to be different each day and I wanted to explore their variety and character. I enjoyed the process and results, and as I worked I was able to contemplate the meaning of the mountains in my life. It was interesting to me that something could be so large and always present, yet I hadn’t paid real attention to them before. I considered how the mountains helped me in my transition to living in Utah – having moved from the east coast – and contemplated what they added to what is now my home. We view them from below as a part of the landscape, and also enter into them gaining a completely new perspective. They are characters standing over us at the same time as being a sanctuary to us. Through this work I was able to explore the visual beauty of the mountains as well as what they have meant and could mean in my life.”
