Marianne Kolb, Storrow Drive/North Station at Hespe Gallery

Hespe Gallery is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new works by Marianne Kolb. An opening reception will be held on Thursday, October 4, 2012 from 5:30 – 7:30 PM. The exhibition will continue until October 27, 2012.
Storrow Drive/North Station references an unidentified photograph in which an elderly woman stands laden down with bags. Marianne Kolb, upon seeing the image, misread the title as "sorrow drive". That happenstance was a catalyst for a body of work that addresses stereotypes, misperceptions and societal interaction.

In her exploration of the human condition, Kolb uses materials as a guide, revealing layers in a tangible metaphor. In this pursuit, Kolb is convinced that the boundaries of our physicality both define and separate us from each other; the underlying depth, a representative of the ideal.
