Cig Harvey:  Gardening At Night

Artist's Reception & Book Signing:  

Saturday, June 13

6:00 - 8:00 pm


Gardening at Night is Cig Harvey's second monograph published by Schilt; it revisits familiar themes but takes things as they are.  The first book, You Look At Me Like An Emergency finds and defines home, while Gardening At Night engages settling into place and making home where you are.  Harvey's work is infused with light, color, and magical realism.  The work is delicate and dark, and it seems to unfold like a metaphor for life.  Frames collapse time and put all of creation into parallel: two sisters dressed in blue watch over a nest of robin's eggs; an open palm releases a finch into the forest; garden scraps litter a table like disassembled still-life.  There is a primal undertone to the work as well; it seems to touch a place inside us that fascinates us and yet needs no explanation.
