Marcia Pitch: About Face

City Hall Galleria, To Mar 5

by Robin Laurence

Vancouver-based artist Marcia Pitch is best known for her small assemblages of found objects, often toys, and their play with the odd and the grotesque. Featured here, however, are recent collages that employ the deconstructed and reconstructed human face to address body politics, genetic manipulation, and the impact of pollution and climate change on natural evolution. Installed at Richmond City Hall, Pitch’s show is part of the Richmond Art Gallery’s community outreach program.
