1. Leah Mulligan Cabinum

February 2, 2019 - March 15, 2019
Leah Mulligan Cabinum is best known for her sculptural installations and objects made from diverse materials and varied techniques. “My art is about cycles,” she has said, which is the pervasive theme throughout her practice. “I’m interested in linking the physical and the conceptual.” Often derived from found or repurposed cast-offs or detritus, her materials are chosen for their inherent attributes. Cabinum’s practice has been described as postminimalist, risky and honest.

Statement

This emotive body of work continues to be created as a response to my personal journey. As a middle-aged person, I continue to be amazed by the ridiculousness of life - it’s highs and lows, it’s beauty and it’s anguish, it’s poverty and it’s richness. Life constantly amazes me. As my existence continues, my perspective continues to evolve from one of reckoning to one of reveling.

Biomorphic, curvaceous and bulging forms made from a variety of materials mimic the visceral and link my physical and psychological beings. In keeping with established personal practice, this exhibition relies upon natural references, such as flora, fauna, the human body and physiology to symbolize various phases and emotions that I have experienced in my youth until the present. While my perception of this mature period of life has only just begun to form, it stems from fertile ground and is the hearty, rich stuff of ripened fruit. Youth is simply my compost.


Join us on Saturday, February 2nd at 5pm for an informal Walk & Talk with Leah. Reception begins at 6pm.
