Case+Edgerton Studios is proud to present The Sisters by NEVA SILLS
 

Through the language of collage, Sills allows for 'an improvisatory act of transformation as she plays off the poetics (and sometimes absurdity) of historical femininity. Conveying fall plants and silhouettes in a simultaneous act of support and separation, The Sisters, explores complicated relationships while highlighting the act of growth and change.'

The Sisters was made by Sills for the site in celebration of the community gardens and outdoor classrooms underway at CE Studios.'
