Glimpse into a well-developed sensibility, articulating different aspects of the artist's growth and essence. Pop, Cubism, Photorealism, Surrealism all serve as a point of departure leading to her distinctive treatments of shape, plane, use of bold color and fragmented imagery. Excerpts from a variety of series (Capriccio, Fetish, Fragments) including her latest, Fugues. "Using the circular form I attempt to interweave fragments and textures into a contrapuntal composition, whose basic structure consists of themes stated successively in different voices. I aspire to create harmony and provoke a dreamlike state of altered consciousness in the viewer."
Catch Kaleidoscope before it closes! Designer's Reception 5-7:30 pm Saturday, June 24th. A must for designers and decorators, digital evolutions by Marko Shuhan push oil paintings to explore metaphor and illusion through digital manipulation. Hyper-real mixed media collages by Maya Farber stretch perception to its limit, evoking the question of what is preconceived v. what is created through a series of still life dialogues. Abstract glassworks by Glenn Abel share the world through his vision of fused and cast glass, manipulated and expressed through vibrant color. The Color Field Sculptureﾮ installation of Transitions by Shelley Parriott now graces the west lawn. Her miniature interior to large-scale installations present visual and perceptual dichotomy; an integration between the corporeal and the intangible.
