Scanga’s Salina Art Center exhibition presents approximately ten large-scale drawings. These drawn environments tell stories that are often about spaces that are neither solely interior nor exterior. These spaces allude to the blurring of boundaries between the internal, spiritual world and the material, corporeal world. Her stories are based on memories of particular spaces, and by distorting these spaces and her perceptions of architecture, the artist attempts to expose the relationship between nostalgic and cultural promotions of innocence and hopelessness or death. Organized by the Salina Art Center.
