Push and Pull stems from Raleigh’s interest in the way living things regulate their internal and external environments, constantly seeking balance, both psychologically and physiologically. The work in this show is about the struggle to find that balance. Raleigh creates figures, shapes and marks that describe the rough, unkempt, imperfect, humorous, and dysfunctional parts of our bodies, minds, and world.
