Traveling Light, Topsy Turvey, Compton Nocturne, and Tree Souls, 1999, Installation view

Alison Saar’s work explores freedom and choice, apathy and resistance. The Museum presented Traveling Light, Topsy Turvey, and Compton Nocturne, three monumental sculptures made of wood and bronze, some incorporating sound and moving images. These figurative hybrids are both human and mythic, sometimes blurring the line between popular culture and ancient mythologies. This exhibition also marked the West Coast premiere of Tree Souls, a striking sixteen-foot-high sculpture made from real trees, which was exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum in 1996.
