Mixed Media, Photography, Sculpture
About the artistShirley Wiebes’ work focuses on connections between environment, memory and identity. Delving into underlying themes revealed in her immediate or particular surroundings, she creates distinct bodies of work in response. Her work is characterized by this continued metamorphosis in mode of expression and by hybrid forms that frequently develop. She recently salvaged the dismembered keyboard of an old piano that had been abandoned on a side street near SW Marine Way, a tip from her friend who was passing by. It is now the central element of an installation entitled 'Encore' and will greet Crawl visitors as they enter her building. This year Shirley is also working on small mixed media studies of reimagined places.
