Wayfinding: Bill Brayton and Naomi Darling
R.W. Kern Center,Gallery
Wall sculptures by Bill Brayton, professor of art, read like architectural drawings in space across the walls of the Kern gallery. They are inspired in part by Polynesian nautical stick charts: early navigational aids that mapped ocean swells. They are sculpted from locally-sourced steam-bent white oak and a lightweight hybrid concrete of Brayton's own devising. The sculptures are presented in dialogue with etchings by Naomi Darling, assistant professor of sustainable design, in which she layered historical maps and geological surveys of the Connecticut River Valley and Long Island Sound with markers of her own movement and memory in each region. The etchings' frames are made of leftover pine from the Kern Center construction, reflecting Hampshire's ethic of reuse and sustainability.
