Marguerite Larmand exhibition invitationNovember in the TBA will feature an installation by artist and educator Marguerite Larmand. Larmand’s show Beyond Reach is a series of drawings made from natural willow, wired, lashed and painted. Willow is a living material and aspects such as shrinking, warping and sprouting are  integral to the process. Because they are made in actual space, a change in momentum and position is constant, movement in various directions is necessary and making them becomes an act of drawing, an act outside understanding. Only when complete, can the essential character be determined. Coating the lines with paint transforms the natural willow into what appears to be material as fragile as charcoal or as strong as iron.
