Mixed media intallation by Andrea Sanders opening Friday, September 7 from 5 – 7pm.

Unmoored is an exploration of impermanence through light, shadow, and materials. Each component in the exhibit is meant to change as the viewer interacts with it. Many of the materials are color shifting and transparent, so some of the pieces will transform entirely as one moves and their focus shifts. An ebb and flow of concrete and conceptual ideas is explored through the play of light, amorphous shapes, and defined structures in the exhibit.


Many of the pieces are composed of items that are recycled and transformed, providing new life to something that has fulfilled its intended purpose. Plastic is a key material used. It’s discarded after a brief use, but goes on to exist for hundreds of years. Plastic’s transitory nature illustrates the overlap of permanence and impermanence.


A colorful sunset or unexpected shadows provide brief instants of beauty throughout the day. Unmoored seeks to capture these special moments and extend them, embracing the peculiarity of impermanence.
