Angela Hansen’s new exhibition at the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art, 'Breath' takes inspiration from the ocean to consider the carbon cycle and the impact humanity is having upon it.

'Breath' includes a series of small wall-sculpture studies made of encaustic (a beeswax-based painting and sculpting medium), natural tissue, twine, and string, that are inspired by Earth’s flora, and micro-fauna. Hansen calls these biomorphic designs “Organimorphs”, as they look biologic, yet not recognizable as any particular one thing.

'Breath' will be on view in the Window Gallery of the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art from May 21 to July 3, 2021. For more information, visit

The Alternator is open Tuesday - Friday, 11 am - 6 pm and Saturday 11 am - 4 pm.
