Review: Here & There: New Work by Shannon Hinkle

 

Through Dec. 26 at City Gallery (at Harrison Center for the Arts). Perth, Australia and Indianapolis don’t have much in common except Indy native Shannon Hinkle, who will soon relocate to Perth. A recent trip down under — on which she happened to view some of the continent's undeveloped backcountry by plane — inspired this show.

Among the mixed media works on display here, which combine drawing, photography and block printing, is a linocut portrait of Indianapolis juxtaposed on the Australian shore entitled “Reflection.” In addition to making me think of those “Australian perspective” world maps that place Antarctica on top of the world and put the United States down under, it made me think of how a cityscape can influence — and reflect — a state of mind.
