Porous Sediments

Haylee Ebersole is a multidisciplinary artist currently residing in Pittsburgh, PA.   Originally from Denver, she grew up exploring the Rocky Mountains at her family’s cabin in South Park Colorado.  Inspired by the expansiveness of basin grasslands, canyons, river valleys, snowy peaks, and ancient forests, Ebersole’s work draws upon her experiences within the natural landscape.  As a kid, she collected an array of sedimentary rocks, pieces of petrified wood, and animal bones, all of which function as evidentiary fragments of the environments slow change over time.   Handling and contemplating these objects has inspired the ways Ebersole engages with ideas, materials, and processes.  In her most recent project, Porous Sediments, she investigates the transformative potential of gelatin and its various metamorphoses to produce objects that evade a static form and that are continually in flux.
