Exhibition Abstract

In a time of great ecological and societal loss, seeding/seeping explores the potential for inquiry, healing, and connection through the embodied tree. From sculpture, textile, drawing, and a participatory piece, Sheila Novak's exhibition captures one year of graduate work as a current M.F.A. student at Cornell University. With trees as a conduit for connection, these works examine personal narratives of grief and growth alongside a decolonial ethic of reciprocity.
