A bas relief brown gazed, ceramic boat shape inscribed inside with words is installed next to an intimately scaled work on paper that includes five boat shapes and, again, hand written words. This mixed media work offers a metaphoric narrative about journey, change and being alone. Allen Hietala's work has been shown in numerous venues in the US, France and Singapore, and is held in diverse collections. She has taught and lectured in the US, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Thailand and Nepal.
