Allison Wade combines an interest in the structures of language with an extraordinary sensitivity to the place of the part within the whole. Her work actively produces and maintains an exquisite tension, with particular attention paid to points of connection and juxtaposition. Wade's sculpture and drawings reveal the syntax of emotion and the grammar or relationships. For this exhibition, she has re-imagined Clough-Hanson Gallery's standard exhibition publication as an artist's book that will be freely distributed to guests, further underscoring the relationship of her work to language.
