TRAIT
Archer Gallery presents Trait, an exhibition of artwork curated by Blake Shell exploring aspects ranging from literary devices to genetic characteristics and traits of physical location. Featuring both regional and national contemporary artists Trait views fictional and physical worlds through work beginning with a single detail and developing into an exploration of larger implications.

My work was built in both Iceland and Oregon. This project explores a site of convergence and transgression where land meets sea, where the landscape moves from vertical to horizontal, and associatively between life (verticality) and death (horizontality)*.
