Vermilion. Ellen Ziegler has been thoroughly seduced by the color. It runs through all of her work of the last several years, a metaphor for the interface between the psychological and physical, interiority and its expression in the material world. The forms that dance both sinuously and playfully across Ziegler’s canvas might remind us of the moment we first saw the molecular world rendered miraculous and otherworldly by an electron microscope. Or shapes and faces in the clouds as we lay on our back and watch masses of condensed vapor form and reform in the sky. Alternately life-affirming or more ambivalent, they are Rorschach tests, metaphors for the messy and innately human.
