Current Art Exhibit at the Bamboo Grove: Sanna-Lisa Gesang-Gottowt

Sanna-Lisa Gesang-Gottowt grew up in a commune outside of Stockholm, Sweden, in a very creative and politically aware environment. In 2003, Gesang-Gottowt moved to Portland, Oregon, where she studied art at Marylhurst University. In 2009, she completed the Bachelor of Fine Arts program. This is her third solo-show since graduating; her work has also been included in group shows at Blackfish Gallery, GalleryHomeland and Worksound. Her thesis was a combination of photography, painting, sculpture and installation that used imagery of, among other objects, walls and fences to explore connections between the personal and up close with world politics. The paintings in the current exhibition are a continuation of this exploration of signs of inclusion, exclusion, belonging and the idea of identity that can come with it.

Come by the Bamboo Grove Salon soon, SE Taylor and 2nd Ave, to catch her work before it leaves!
