Chenoweth’s flowing three-dimensional wall installation is inspired by the four elements: earth, water, air and fire. She has created a unique topography utilizing the lengthy, traveling space of the gallery in a way that has not yet been explored. Chenoweth’s methods and process for this piece include ink drawings on rice paper, torch-cut metal, dripped paint, and repeating spiraling cones in cast plaster.
