The Line, The Winter and The Wanderers
Opening Reception: Saturday, October 18th from 5 – 8 pm.
Loosely borrowing from the title, theme and the imagery of C.S. Lewis’s novel, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, this exhibit plays with the novel’s title and explores alternative realities, journeys of discovery, struggles and the sense of atmospheric tension.
Stephanie Franks explores linear elements and painted forms. Each painting of Stephanie Franks might be compared to a journey, a voyage of discovery. The journey begins as paint is applied. A sense of tension permeates the whisper of atmospheric space, which is locked into place by line, form and color. Painted forms and linear elements define place and speak of the struggle engaged in during their execution.
Caren Sommer-Lazar’s current work includes line drawings and paintings from nature and 3-D assemblages. Her outdoor studies capture the sense of the unseen, dark and enchanted wandering into unfamiliar woods. 3-D assemblages convey both tainted and innocent qualities.
Evelyn Sadler showcases the strange and snowy world. Evelyn explains, “ I like to paint with the camera. Through photography I engage intimately with my surroundings and play with reflections to create an alternative reality, sometimes a bit dreamy, other times more emotional or intriguing. Viewers are deprived of the concrete context and encouraged to get involved in a more subjective exploration. My intention is to evoke a certain mood and generate a sense of wonder or uncertainty.
Cecile Brunswick wandered to the exotic destinations of Morocco, Mexico and Spain. “When I travel, I often see architecture, colors, scenery, people, and music that is visibly “different” to me. My abstract paintings are infused with the colors, light, languages and sounds of other cultures. Trips to Morocco and Mexico, for instance changed my palette and the way I paint. I try to convey, in an abstract way, the warmth and friendliness I encountered in my travels.
The Line, The Winter and The Wanderers opens on Saturday,October, 18th and closes on Saturday, January 10th, 2015.
