Event Description:
Art Exhibition
The Fine Arts Gallery is please to present Saturate/Desaturate, featuring paintings by Mona Brody, Stephan Cimini, Susan A. Davis and Megan Klim. Each of these artists explores the most difficult element, color, in a unique and facinating way. Saturation is described as the purity of a color. Desaturation is described a color that is muted. Join us for a look at how these artists create compositions, express complex ideas and delight our senses with and without color.
Mona Brody has exhibited extensively in the United States and internationally. The intentional quality of the sublime emerges at the heart of her work. The metaphoric possibilities that result from the collection and discovery of natural objects, the physical space of the canvas, and the interaction of materials reveal the strange and uncanny place within the familiar.
Stephen Cimini creates paintings building on the architectural origins, which have been the basis of his work for over a decade; he started referring the compositions as random symmetry. That is, creating a balance on the canvas with no discernible pattern allowing a symmetrical, meditative composition to emerge. He employs the golden mean as a reference which can often be seen in the composition. Color remains a constantly unfolding mystery.
Susan A. Davis has been creating paintings and drawings in various media, including notably oil, pastel, R&F handmade pigment sticks and watercolor, since the early seventies. Her work is focused on abstract forms exploring color, texture and depth, roughly in the tradition of color field painting from the late fifties and sixties.
Megan Klim juxtaposes several materials on one picture plane to create an interaction and conversation between them while highlighting the inherent qualities of the specific materials. A physical presence is apparent in her pieces from textured encaustic surfaces, punctured paper to grid like structures made of thread, wire or cloth. Through her use of pattern or repetition, she reflects upon human individuality while also offering a tactile visual experience.
The exhibition runs from October 23 through December 7, with the opening reception on October 23 from 5:30 to 7:30pm. The show will be part of JC Fridays with a closing reception on Dec 7 from 5 to 7pm. The gallery is free to the public and all are welcome.
