Lost & Found
Boston-based artists Edie Bresler and Caleb Cole select works from recent projects focusing on found and appropriated images which are transformed through intervention and imagination into narratives on love, loss and longing. Alternative processes and mixed-media applications transport the viewer into imagined realities, both fantastical and true.
