New Artwork – February 2013
NEW ARTWORK AT DAVIS AND CLINE GALLERY – FEBRUARY 2013
This limited edition photograph by Miya Ando uses special dyes applied to a brushed aluminum sheet. The result is a dynamic and lustrous surface that changes with the light source and the viewer’s angle of view.
Frieda Golding’s new drawings on mylar are subtle outlines of her environment distilled to essential abstractions of color and association. Framed at 14″ x 13 1/2″ in clear maple wood with plexiglass.
Once again, Natalie Sudman has successfully expressed the same sense of vastness and isolation fused with observational annotation that was so much a part of her earlier map series. In this case however, the documentation of lost civilizations has been replaced by the documentation of the process of loss of our own civilization.
Keira Kotler’s paintings done on acrylic sheets using slow drying urethane and varnishes, shimmer like transparent liquid metal illusions.
Matthew Picton’s work is best understood as a progression and development of a focused idea using a broad range of innovative and unusual media. His work has an intellectual point of departure with a near obsessive application resulting in spectacular objective representations of the built environment.
This series of work by Joshua Stringer is a meditation on transience. “Mono no aware” is a Japanese term that refers to the subtle beauty of transience. The cloud forms, leaves, and delicate gestures in this work relate to one another, in a way, like visual haiku; resisting narrative to lead us to a state of silence and reflection where we may find something of the eternal in the temporal.
