"A Short History"
February 1-24, 2002

Debra Stuckgold, of Seattle, Washington, returns to Richmond for her first solo exhibition at Artspace. Her recent body of work, "A Short History"
continues her exploration of notions of time and place. Beginning with
random ink washes, she creates her own maps, redefining borders and
spaces. Subsequent layers of materials such as wax, inks, acrylics and
red earth collected from travels to the Southwest are incorporated.
Stuckgold describes," These works are not just a history of the earth,
but its inhabitants' journeys as they traverse the landscape. While some
pieces are direct reflections of maps, others are a meditation on
topography, the physicality and poetry of the land itself."
