Tree Island

Thursday, February 07, 2019 - Tuesday, March 05, 2019

 

Opening Reception
Thursday, February 7th from 7 - 9 pm

 

'Tree island is a place in the imagination, where two worlds meet. It is a place where we encounter the wilderness, on the fringes of the built world. It is a place where our conflicting inner selves meet: the person who is part of nature by birth, and the person who is forever separated from it.' GH, 2018

Serious Whimsy

Opening Reception:  

Thursday, February 7 from 7 - 9 pm

Artist Talk:  Saturday, February 9 @ 3 pm

 

'The paintings in Serious Whimsy attempt to investigate the often tenuous and complicated relationship between the ‘decorative’ and abstract painting. Using the Rococo art movement as a point of reference, I combine decorative patterning with my continued interest in the ribbon motif. My intention is to tease out concepts associated with the Rococo: elaborate ornamentation, theatrical design, levity and indulgence. Ultimately, they are serious paintings about whimsy. ' SC, 2018
