"In this two-person show, artists use drawing, intaglio, and collage to question the arbitrary functions of bodies, structures, machinery, and limbs.
"The characteristics of form shared between Ellen Ziegler and Kim Van Someren, rooted deeply in a tradition of draftsmanship, present organic masses and architectural objects as bodies with needs, functions, and absurdities. Extraneous limbs protrude from gargantuan figures, balancing precariously in motion. Cantilevered beams stretch out tentatively, impossibly long, searching the foreground like feelers. And strange polyps of excessive growth belie the form; their flesh extended and branching out like dendrils on synapses. Whether lesion, organ, fortress, or tool; these bodies toil and grow without end towards some designated function beyond the limits of our imagination." Sharon Arnold, Bridge Productions
