Artist Reception October 5th 4-6pm
The Gallery brings together four artists whose approach to art making is diverse, yet they all are explorers of the emotional complexity of the physical world.
In this show we are traveling the ephemeral path of the abstract to experience its color, allow its line to open us to discovering the intuitive feeling of place and time. These themes are echoed in Jean Feinberg’s carefully constructed gouache paintings.
Using monoprinting as a starting place Marie-Claude Giroux is interested in the process of uncovering and stripping away emotional paradigms.
As we trace the diverse emotional lineage that is present in the work of these four artists, we are able to flow from the abstract into an emotionally realistic state with the work of Kingsley Parker. His work brings us to earth, forcing us to feel a haunting sense of foreboding as he brings our attention to our looming environmental crisis.
Emotion and realism come together in Beth Thielen’s delicate yet tactile work allowing us entry into an ultra real world of prison life and a glimpse into the eyes of the individuals who live there.
The juxtaposition of these disparate views on emotional expression takes us on a journey from the inner world into the physical.
