Second State Press is pleased to present, No Fixed Shape, an exhibit of artworks by Ashley Limés Castellana. About her work Ashley says, “My artistic practice seeks to promote a connection with ourselves and the natural world by encouraging focused attention on a limited landscape. When experiencing a natural expanse, I begin to reduce it into components. Forest, river, ripples, line, pattern. Looking at something so vast becomes more manageable when broken down into these parts, fading out the activity around it. In this series, I’ve reduced the landscape to emphasize water in order to highlight the various states of its fluidity, and how the solid shape of the land informs it. Through the process of drawing and printmaking I hope to record these observations and provide a tool for reflection.”
