“Earthly” kicks off a new series of solo exhibitions in the Projects Gallery of BigTown Gallery in Rochester. The drawings by the Dummerston artist utilize organic (and, yes, vaginal) forms for a mandala-like effect. Hermansader’s renderings present “small elements of nature as emblems, essential mysteries or as objects of reverence,” according to the gallery. With titles such as “Quicken” and “Puparium,” time and transformation emerge as key thematic elements, as does that moment when a seed begins to become something else — conception. “I create a scene for the solitude of the viewer,” says Hermansader. “I try to create images to stir things up, for [the viewer] to know what they can know from within themselves.”
