"Better Angels" is a phrase in Abraham Lincoln’s inaugural speech calling us to be our most moral selves. With bold, flat color and convoluted forms, the sculptural installation Better Angels hovers overhead, drawing our attention upwards to a higher plane. The pieces float, suspended above our heads, intertwining like vines or Renaissance winged babies, eliciting mirth and joy.


Adria Arch is a multi-media artist living in the Boston area.

Most recently, Arch’s installations have been exhibited at Boston Sculptors Gallery, Brattleboro Art Museum in Vermont and at the Danforth Museum in Framingham, MA.

She has been awarded residencies at Vermont Studio Center, Virginia Center for the Creative Arts, Sanskriti Foundation in Delhi. Her work is included in many private and public collections including the DeCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Fidelity Corporation, and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston.
