Press Release

Ellen Lesperance's paintings, sculptures and textiles pay tribute to direct action campaigns and feminist activism. With You & I Are Earth, Lesperance explores the form and practice of protest and public space with a series of paintings that touch on eco­activism surrounding pressing environmental concerns such as global warming, fracking and the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster. The works skillfully conflate the political with the poetic to merge ideology and individualism.
