Twyla Exner "Thing 5 (Albino)" 2012
The ODD Gallery presents a new exhibition by the Saskatchewan-based artist Twyla Exner.
Titled "Entangled", the exhibition comprises a series of drawings and sculptures that use discarded telephone wires as both material and conceptual inspiration. Striped from their original casings, exploited for their colour and maliability, wires have been woven into organic forms that recall nature. These sculptures seriously engage with many current social, political, and environmental issues, but are also whimsical imaginings of an alternative ending for the residues of the electronic evolution.
