The Reflection Series by Julie Tremblay
Dates of exhibition: September 7 - December 9, 2012
Reception: October 12, 5-7 pm
Free and open to the public
University Park. PA. - The HUB-Robeson Galleries will display Julie Tremblay's nine, life-size, figurative sculptures, made out of salvaged, stamped-out sheets of tin plated steel, used to make bottle caps, in the HUB Gallery. The sculptures are a reflection on humanity and our contemporary society. This body of work shown in the gallery was started in 2007 and completed in 2008. There will be a public reception on October 12 from 5 - 7 pm.
All along, Tremblay had been very interested in gesture, symbolism and the power of metaphors. The works, in their lightness, challenge conceptions of traditional sculpture. They contain many ambiguities; they are as much air as they are material, the space not exclusively contained to the exterior of the sculpture, but continued inside. Although they are figurative, they also contain an abstraction. Formal and sculptural themes are also very important in her work, such as balance, density, lightness, the intangible, order and chaos, dynamism, etc, which become metaphors of social themes and mental states.
