Exhibition: The Invisible Landscape by Orr Ambrose

“The Invisible Landscape” is a solo exhibition, featuring a collection of works by Orr Ambrose.
“The Invisible Landscape” explores the theories of cosmology, physics, and microbiology. Each painting will take us past what we can easily see on the surface, to what is unseen. The objective is to take us to places not easily imagined, and find in those places, hidden worlds full of magnificent patterns often seen only when looking through a microscope.
These are the simple building blocks of life. Atoms are the building blocks of matter in the same way solar systems are the building blocks of galaxies. Orr Ambrose constructs her paintings in much the same way. Starting with simple geometric shapes and lines, she meticulously connects them to each other line by line and shape to shape. This creates a unique perspective which may change upon closer inspection as the small details are taken in by the viewer.
Bright, eye-catching color palettes are chosen to impart a certain mood and spirit as well as give dimension to each work of art. Each piece will inspire the viewer to step outside themselves and into a world that is rarely seen; a world that makes the invisible visible.
Orr Ambrose was born in Houston, Texas, and was raised in the foothills of South Carolina. Now, as a Charlotte-based artist, she has exhibited in group and solo shows in the southeast for the past 20 years. She earned her BFA from the Lamar Dodd School of Art at the University of Georgia. Her work has been shown at the Spartanburg Art Museum, Spartanburg, S.C. (2016), the Umstead Hotel, Cary, N.C. (2015), the Asheville Museum of Science, Asheville, N.C. (2015), and the Museum of Life and Science, Durham, N.C. (2014).

Exhibition Date: June 10 – August 1, 2019
