Folding and Thrusting is a solo exhibition of new work by Denver-based artist Gretchen Marie Schaefer. Rooted in geology, the exhibition features a large-scale dimensional painting and photographic works that combine geologic abstraction with notions of perception. This exhibition expands on her most recent body of work that, through challenging our relationship with the earth, delves into the implicit power dynamics embedded in common ways of seeing the world. By challenging these common assumptions, these sculptural paintings and photographs explore the nature of vision and the cultural frameworks that bolster world-views.
