"Crossing back and forth, between the two-dimensional format and three-dimensional forms in space. Crossing in and out, between illusionary and actual depth," reads the artist's statement.
Crossing--currently at the University of Calgary's Mezzanine Gallery--is Julie Chapdelaine's personal exploration of forms in space. The series of six reliefs represents seven years of work on Chapdelaine's part, a fact reflected in the intricacy and detail of the pieces.
Crossing is visually intriguing, and draws the viewer in. It's not really eye candy though, more like a balanced eye diet: not as much instant gratification, but much more to digest.
