Claire Strickland at Bamboo Grove

It was my distinct pleasure to visit Gabriel Weiss’ Bamboo Grove Salon on Thursday to see Claire Strickland’s wonderfully evocative work.
Ms. Strickland, who received her BFA from Marylhurst University in 2008, is displaying her
Transplant Stratagem and Eco Prayers works.

Transplant Stratagem is a series of intimate format collages.

Eco Prayers Is a 5 part linocut series. Each features the human face combined with one of the 5 ancient elements-earth, water, wind, fire, and sky.

I found both sets of work engaging and enticing and was immediately drawn to the linocuts, in part because of their size as well as the composition. The pieces are very large… perhaps 16X20 … with small edition limits.
