Works by Erika Jaeggli

Program Gallery

Peep in the Deep is an exhibition of new works by Dallas-based artist Erika Jaeggli. The paintings presented here are a continuation of Jaeggli’s ongoing investigation into cave systems. Caves are an important part of Jaeggli’s research with their other-worldly formations, scale, geometry, and colors. Conceptually, they represent an intersection of art, history, geology and philosophy. In cultures throughout the world, caves often have a gendered association and are known the “womb” of the earth. Considering an alternative view of the landscape through a feminine lens is an important concern when creating these works. Rather than the traditional approach to landscape painting in which the viewer gazes upon the earth from a distance, these works ask the viewer to look inside the earth. Entering a cave feels like entering a body. Through these works, the artist’s aim is to dissolve boundaries and present the earth as a living, breathing organism. The works that make up this exhibition are a cross-section of Jaeggli’s process. The paintings combine digital collage, encaustic wax, and oil paint. The process of joining new and traditional media are a nod to the artist’s contemporary interpretation of caves, which are the sites of the ancient forms of art.

Now it's time for me to submit all the necessary documents for admission. But as it turned out, not everything is so simple and I ran into the problem of writing a personal statement at the place of residence. It's good that I was already familiar with the specialists and this time they also helped me. With them, I can be sure of enrollment.
