STRUCTURAL STUDY

There is an organic beauty in Shelley Mansel's depictions of man-made forms. Though she began her career as a painter of landscapes, Mansel has lately ddrawn praise for her naturalistic images of buildings. At Ingram Gallery, the Nova Scotia artist extends her interest in built structures and the ironic similarity of their under-construction and decaying states. Mansel's solo exhibition, entitled Armature, collects two-dozen works on paper - including Water Tower (pictured) - in which the rigid, geometric skeletons of scaffolds, bridges, ship hulls and more gain artistry through charcaol shading and the deft application of encaustic wax.
