Catie Newell: Salvaged Landscape

Tuesday, November 2nd, 2010

Amazingly beautiful installation by artist Catie Newell in Detroit.  Constructed with salvaged pieces of wood from a burned out building, Newell created a passageway through the charred structure’s frame.  The geometric front facade shows the unburnt cross sections while the back reveals the story of the burnt wood, piece by charred piece.

Newell’s installation is part of a new Detroit non-profit called the Imagination Station.  The story of this space is inspiring, I’ll post more about it on my other site Poesy & Praxis here.  Newell was invited to create the installation in the burnt remains before the building is torn down to make way for a new artist space.
